Groundhogs deciding how long winter will last is one thing, but hippos predicting who will win this year’s Super Bowl… that’s a whole other ball game.
A ridiculously cute one, at that.

The Toronto Zoo tweeted a video of pygmy hippo Kindia and her little one Penelope approaching Draecada leaves that were hung from footballs representing the opposing teams.
Here’s the final round of #PygmyPotamusPicks 🏈
Penelope and Kindia have made their final pick for @NFL Super Bowl. Keepers provided dracaena leaves hanging from each team’s football, and the first leaf they eat is their winning choice. (Keyword: EAT). #SBLIII @NFLCanada pic.twitter.com/0T3BoHwBFp

Whichever leaf the hippos chose to eat from first would be their winning choice.
They opted for the Patriots, and John Tory tweeted with enthusiasm about their pick.

February 2 might be Groundhog Day, but can we declare February 1 to be Pygmy Potamus Day, too?
