(Newser) – One way or another, a horse or a bird is going home with the Lombardi Trophy for Super Bowl XLVIII. The big game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks is just around the corner, and it's the first Super Bowl to be played on Groundhog Day, so what better way to predict the winner than by using nature itself?

  • Teddy Bear the poorly named porcupine has a pretty impressive track record—picking the correct winners of the past two years. Looks like the Seattle Seahawks for him this year.
  • But two Komodo dragons named Murphy and Diablo, from Texas' Moody Gardens, doubled up on the Broncos with both choosing Denver.
  • Seahawks can often prey on rabbits in the wild, but Fred the "Psychic" Bunny doesn't seem to care. He's got them winning it all.
  • Buffett and Hugh, manatees at Florida's Mote Marine Laboratory, came to a split decision: Hugh is going with the Seahawks, and he's been right four out of six years. But Buffett is looking for his seventh straight victory and is putting his manatee moolah on the Broncos.
