ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A prognosticating orangutan at a Minnesota zoo has picked the Denver Broncos to win Sunday's Super Bowl.
Amanda the Orangutan ran into her exhibit at St. Paul's Como Park Zoo on Saturday and went straight for a pair of boxes, each containing a shirt of the two teams battling for NFL supremacy, the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.
After some last-minute contemplating, zoo officials say, she chose the Broncos box, tore out the blue shirt and put it on her hairy red body.
A zoo statement says Como's three other orangutans - Jambu, Markisa and Jaya - joined her to admire her new apparel and to play with other football-themed toys in their exhibit.
