Lehigh Valley Zoo Otter Bowl picks super winner


Naya and Luani, the Lehigh Valley Zoo’s North American river otters, have some fun Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018, during Otter Bowl at the zoo in North Whitehall Township. They chose between two sardine-filled papier-mache footballs labeled for the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots as a way to pick the winner of Sunday’s Super Bowl LII. One otter went for each of the footballs, but both then ended up interested in the Eagles one, suggesting a tight game and overtime win for Philadelphia, said zoo President Melissa Borland. The zoo says its otters correctly picked four of the last six Super Bowl winners. (Kurt Bresswein | For lehighvalleylive.com)
