SF Zoo Animals Disagree on Who’ll Win the Super Bowl

SF Zoo Animals Disagree on Who’ll Win the Super Bowl

San Francisco Zoo resident Nataani, a Navajo Churro ram, has sided with the Los Angeles Rams and predicted the Southern California team will win Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. But its zoo-mate leopard tortoise, named Bump n’ Run, picked the New England Patriots as the winner

Being 38 years old, Bump n’ Run has seen more Super Bowls than 10-year-old Nataani. But does that mean its prediction is more likely? It made a “tortoise”-line towards the Patriots after some detour, stopping to munch on some grass, said San Francisco Zoo spokesperson Nancy Chan.

On the other hand, Nataani went straight for the plate of mashed chow, bananas and apples with the Rams’ flag, Chan said.

We won’t know who will win the Super Bowl until Sunday, but at least the animals get to have some fun treats. And as we all know, it’s the noms that really matter.

thewhimsyturtle:

Can I replicate my uncanny success predicting last year’s game?  🏈🐢  More importantly, what do you do when you run out of noms on the field?!  (Watch through the end to find out!)  😱

Who will you be you rooting for on Sunday, @patriots or @philadelphiaeagles?

(If you missed last year’s video, you can watch it here!)

Zoya has everything in place for our #Superbowl Party! GO @Patriots ! #LetsDoThis

Zoya doesn’t feel strongly about this super bowl, so she’s watching highlights of the #49ers season, especially @SammyKaep7 ‘s dad (her fav). Humom is wondering what kind of NE er she raised. Go Patriots, Zoya! Patriots! 

None of this matters? oh. right. 

Thanks to @sammyKaep7 , this year’s superbowl tweeting sure did include a lot of tortoise mentions! The good, the bad, and the obnoxious! Still pretty great that people are paying attention! hope anyone inspired does their research before adopting.. and hey.. reread my post about Sulcata tortoises, Red Eared Sliders, and remember to adopt a rescue!  

Buck up Sammy! we look forward to your dad kicking ass next year (though we are always #NewEnglandPatriots at hearts over here)

It seems this superbowl has more turtle and tortoise love than ever before! While the Ravens are about to play for in the superbowl, Baltimore is hosting The International Sea Turtle Symposium!.  Coincidence? Is heavy hitting marketing from NFL and Visa really giving a shout out for that reason? Some say so… Either way, the shells surely appreciate the shout out from Ray Lewis. (And I’d really like to be at that symposium…just for the record).
