Super Bowl picks: Hogle Zoo orangutan wild about the Panthers

Tuah, an orangutan at Salt Lake City's Hogle Zoo, kisses a Panthers helmet in his enclosure on Thursday, signifying his pick to win Super Bowl 50. For the past eight years, an animal at Hogle Zoo has correctly predicted the winner of the Super Bowl. Tuah's dad, Eli, who died in 2014, gained notoriety for picking 7 out of 7 Super Bowl champs correctly. Last year African lion Vulcan stepped in and also chose correctly. This year's game, between Carolina and Denver, will be played Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Kickoff is at 4:30 p.m. Mountain time.
