Fiona the hippo makes her Super Bowl prediction

“Cincinnati’s most famous hippopotamus might have made her highly anticipated Super Bowl pick,” according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

“The jury is still out on which team, Fiona, the 3-year-old nile hippo, picked, but she at least made a clear statement about how she feels about one of the teams after the Cincinnati Zoo posted a video of her vomiting on a Kansas City Chiefs logo.

“The half-ton local celebrity was supposed to make her pick by pushing her nose against one of two enrichment items—each bearing the logo of the two Super Bowl contenders.

“But after nuzzling the Kansas City logo, Fiona lost her lunch.

“Her pick has left many football and animal lovers scratching their heads. For the zoo, it’s at least clear that she isn’t a Chiefs fan.”
