Camel predicts Ravens to win Super Bowl

With the Super Bowl quickly approaching, be on the lookout for plenty of prognostications from folks. This even includes some picks from animals. Namely, Princess, a 26-year old camel from Popcorn Park Zoo in New Jersey.

The prophetic mammal has chosen the correct winner in six of the last seven Super Bowls, according to the zoo's general manager. She correctly tabbed the New York Giants in last year's big game.

So, how does she do it?
The method to this camel's madness might be hunger driven, however. 
"She loves graham crackers. In one palm we write down with one of these magic markers the 49ers, and on the other, the Ravens. We cover them with graham cracker so she can't see. Whichever she chooses to eat first is her pick," Bergmann said. "She picked the 49ers to win yesterday, and they did." 
But just this morning Princess had a change of heart.
"She picked the Baltimore Ravens. I guess she picked the older brother," Bergmann joked of the sibling rivalry this year between brothers, John Harbaugh, head coach of the Ravens, and Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the 49ers."
Princess has also been making outcome predictions for Giants and Jets games since 2006.

We shall see if her dubious pick comes to fruition on Feb. 3.
