Photo of the day: After serious deliberation, Dahlia picks the Rams in Sunday’s Super Bowl

Armadillos aren’t notorious for rushing into things, and Dahlia, Loveland Living Planet Aquarium’s southern three-banded armadillo, took the measured approach to picking a winner in Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Dahlia chose the Los Angeles Rams over the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday at the aquarium lobby in Draper, hustling(?) down the field to pick the mealworms in the Rams’ end zone.

Perhaps Dahlia, who was born at the aquarium in May 2021, knows a thing or two. The Rams are considered slight favorites by many prognosticators thanks in part to the game being staged in Los Angeles at their home stadium.

But, mealworms will likely not be on too many Super Bowl snack menus.
