‘Octopus oracle’ keeps perfect recordJuly 8th, 2010 - 12:31 pm ICT by ANI
Oberhausen (Germany), July 8(ANI): Paul, the psychic octopus, has maintained his amazing run of World Cup predictions with Spain’s 1-0 win over Germany in the semi-final.
The octopus at the Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen had earlier predicted that Spain will win the do-or-die clash by picking mussels in a tank with a Spanish flag, and ignoring the German one.
The eight-limbed oracle has picked the correct outcome in six matches, The Sun reports.
British-born Paul’s owners said that he also predicted nearly 70 per cent of the Germany team’s results in the 2008 European Championship.
Paul became an international celebrity after correctly predicting Germany would beat Australia in their opening match, then lose to Serbia, then beat Ghana.
He also correctly forecast German wins against England and Argentina. (ANI)
