Fort Worth Crocodile Agrees with Dallas Porcupine, Picks Seahawks in the Super Bowl
Shouldn't devouring the Seahawks chicken mean he's picking the Patriots?
Fort Worth Zoo
Not willing to cede the spotlight to Teddy Bear, everyone's favorite talking porcupine, the Fort Worth Zoo's 15-foot-long, 1,500-pound saltwater crocodile named Salty got in on the Super Bowl prognostication game Thursday.
While it's disappointing that the flesh used to tempt Salty -- the zoo's "long snapper" -- isn't that of an actual seahawk and an actual Revolutionary War hero, the ease with which he rises out of the water and devours the Seahawks' chicken is cool, if a little disquieting.
Salty joins Teddy Bear in having picked the Seahawks. Sid, a penguin at the Dallas Zoo, picked the Patriots. Given Teddy Bear's status as America's greatest living football pundit, Unfair Park is going with Seattle, and we advise you to do the same.
