Meet Big Head, the 2014 World Cup Animal Psychic in Brazil

Meet Big Head, the 2014 World Cup Animal Psychic in Brazil

World Cup 2014 in Brazil has its very own psychic animal! A 25-year-old loggerhead turtle named Cabeção, or Big Head, picked Brazil to beat Croatia in the opening game on Thursday.

From The Associated Press:

At the Praia do Forte turtle sanctuary north of Salvador, the 25-year-old male sea turtle was given the choice between eating a fish hung from a Brazilian flag or a Croatian flag. After attempting to eat the fish hung from a football indicating a draw, Big Head chose the one representing Brazil.

The small crowd of onlookers cheered in appreciation of Big Head’s choice.

Paul the Octopus shot to fame during the 2010 World Cup in Germany when he predicted eight matches in the tournament, including the final. Spain loved the octopus and considered him a hero. Paul passed away in October 2010, four months after the tournament ended.

Brazil vs. Croatia airs on Thursday, June 12 at 4PM ET on ESPN.
