Paul The German Octopus Properly Predicts Fifth Straight World Cup Match


The secret to Germany’s run in this year’s World Cup may not be the play of Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose, or Mesut Ozil, but a giant octopus named Paul.

According to Sports Untapped, he English-born cephalopod who resides at Sea Life Aquarium in
Oberhausen, Germany, makes picks on Germany’s matches by eating a
mollusk out of one of two flag-labeled plastic containers in its tank.

The octopus has become somewhat of a folk hero as he has compiled a perfect record in predictions so far. As you can see, Paul picked the German mollusk over the Argentine one for his snack.

Paul has yet to make a pick for Germany’s semifinal matchup against Spain.
