Mystic octopus tips Germany over Argentina

7 years ago8.5K views



So far he hasn't made a mistake. And octopus "Paul" is continuing to predict Germany's World Cup results, this time for the quarter final match against Argentina.

Paul, who lives in an aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, has predicted that Germany will beat the South American side on Saturday.

A spokeswoman for the aquarium said Paul had "a one hundred percent hit rate" after rightly forecasting Germany's World Cup victory over Australia, the loss against Serbia, and the win over England.

Paul cannot talk, but rather he is drawn to certain flags of the countries participating in the Wold Cup.

The eight-legged octopus has become a celebrity oracle in Germany and is now also becoming known further afield.

"He's a very skilled prophet. He has nine brains and three hearts and each of his three hearts are pumping for Germany, so that is the reason why Paul is our medium," said Sebastian Krueger of Sealife.
