Los Angeles, Feb 24 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Some future-predicting animals are getting all the attention these days. It was not long that Paul the Octopus thrilled the whole world with his ‘supernatural’ instincts.

Another creature, Heidi the cross-eyed opossum has become the latest sensation. Heidi is in a different prediction business than Paul. The creature has given its prediction on who is going to pick an Oscar this weekend.

The animal has been released every day since the Oscar nominations to select who the winner of a category is. The animal is released into a pen where statuettes of the stars for each particular category are placed. The first statuette that the animal will touch with its paw would be the winner of that category.

If that turns out to be correct then it means there is going to be an Oscar for Black Swan star Natalie Portman. The animal picked the star on Tuesday in the category of the Best Actress.

Paul the octopus during last summer’s FIFA World Cup successfully predicted all the matches that involved Germany and the final match.
