Savannah and Juno set to Predict Winner of Super Bowl LI on Saturday

The El Paso Zoo invites the public to watch the zoo’s elephants, Savannah and Juno, predict the winner of Super Bowl LI at 12:15 p.m. on Saturday, February 4, at the elephant exhibit.

Each elephant will cast a vote by selecting one of the two helmet-shaped piñatas placed in their exhibit by keepers.

“Enrichment activities like the Super Bowl predictions keep the animals stimulated mentally and physically,” said Animal Enrichment Coordinator, Carrie Trudeau. “We provide these types of activities every day to give the animals an opportunity to engage in natural behavior and assert control over their environment.”

This is the fourth year Savannah and Juno will be predicting the Super Bowl winners – will they choose the New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons?

“Savannah and Juno have been known to predict correctly in the past,” Trudeau said. “Even though they’re not making a conscious decision, they enjoy the activity.”

The El Paso Zoo invites the public to come out, wear their jerseys and join the fun.
