>> Behold, the pensive koala, native of Australia. Oobi-Ooobi the marsupial, couldn't care less about European football, or so you would think. Actually, Oobi-Ooobi is joining a long list of animals said to have the power to predict major sporting victories. And he has several shoes to fill, eight to be precise.
00:00:21
According to the director of Leipzig Zoo in Germany, Oobi-Ooobi is the legitimate successor of Paul the Octopus, who rose to fame during the 2010 The World Cup after accurately predicting the winners of all of Germany's matches.>> Well, we believe he's neutral and sees the events here in Europe very relaxed.
00:00:40
Therefore, as an impartial arbitrator, he is very well suited to make a prediction.>> Oobi-Ooobi had to choose between these two delicious eucalyptus branches for Germany's first match against Ukraine. But ended up ignoring both, which can, of course, only mean a draw. But the koala's decision has been rejected by a rival German zoo.

Enter Astrid, a sea lion, Cologne Zoo's front runner for psychic mascot. But this one even more controversial. Seen here clearly picking Ukraine over Germany. Her manager, though, quick to excuse his star.>> Maybe I was bit quick. I wasn't too clear to her that she should bring the ball back for the winning team.

Maybe she thought she should take the loser away.
