El Paso Zoo Elephants to Predict Super Bowl Winner Saturday

The El Paso Zoo‘s Asian Elephants Savannah and Juno will once again predict the winner of Super Bowl LIII between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots on Saturday.

“Providing this type of enrichment is fun for both the elephants and our visitors,” said El Paso Zoo Director Steve Marshall. “Not only is it fun, but it is an opportunity to discover nature and wildlife together.”

Juno will choose her pick at 12:15 p.m. and Savannah at 2:30 p.m.

Zookeepers will place two helmet-shaped piñatas in the elephant exhibit – one with the Rams’ logo and the other with the Patriots’ logo – and the elephants will decide which team wins.

They have been predicting the Super Bowl winners for the last nine years, and have correctly chosen seven out of the last nine Super Bowls.

Zoo visitors are encouraged to wear their favorite NFL jerseys for the event.

Zoo officials add that “animal enrichment activities, such as this one, provide animals at the zoo mental and physical stimulation in their daily lives.”
