'Psychic' Aussie Croc backs Paul, picks Spain

By Samyuktha

Sydney, Jul 10: Based the predictions of 'psychic animals' from across the world, it's Spain 2 and Netherlands 1. If you're wondering, who the latest seer is - meet Harry, a 700 kg Australian crocodile.

On Saturday, Jul 10, the crocodile living in a Darwin crocodile park favoured Spain over Netherlands in the battle for the holy grail of football.

Harry's prediction bolsters the prediction of the world famous Paul, the 'poineer psychic' octopus from Germany.

Even though the predictions match, the animals' divine psychic ways differ. While Paul is known to sit on the box with the flag of the team he thinks would win, the croc choses to eat the chicken under the flag of the team that he foresees as victors.

Before pouncing on the chicken dangling under a Spanish flag, Harry took a minute to think it through.

After seeing Harry thrash around for some time to seize the chicken from the line bearing the Spanish flag, Mick Burns, owner of Crocosaurus Cove, told the Northern Territory News, "It's going to be a close and aggressive game with a 1-0 result for Spain."

On Friday, Jul 9, the World Cup finals predictions were levelled off with one for each finalist when Paul's prediction was contradicted by the psychic parrot from Singapore, Mani, which prophesied that the Dutch will take home their maiden World Cup title in 2010.
