Coati at Palm Beach Zoo predicts Super Bowl winner

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Forget all your stats. Forget each team's history. The real outcome of Super Bowl XLVIII depends on the prediction power of a coati at the Palm Beach Zoo!

"Pekwa" is a coati who's showing us her favorite to win this year's game. 

A zookeeper put two identical food containers in her habitat.

First Pekwa went for the Seahawks for a few bites. Then, a few seconds later, she headed over to the Broncos and completely finished her meat snack.

So Pekwa's official prediction is that the Seahawks will score first, but the Broncos will take the win.

Coati's are members of the raccoon family.
