Sea World tortoise predicts today's World Cup winner

Posted July 1st, 2014 @ 10:05am

If you want to know who is going to win a sporting event, all you need to do is ask an animal. 

That's what workers at SeaWorld in San Antonio were thinking when they asked a tortoise to predict the winner of today's World Cup match-up between the U.S. and Belgium. Henry the African spurred tortoise was presented two soccer balls, one with an American flag on it and one with the Belgium flag on it. And wouldn't you know it, Henry picked the American ball. So now you can place your bets with full confidence that the Americans will win today.
