Sarasota, Florida -- If you put any stock in predictions made by animals, the manatees at Mote are a pretty good bet.

Hugh and Buffet, the resident manatees at Mote, correctly picked the New York Giants to win the Super Bowl over the New England Patriots.

When logos from both the teams were suspended underwater in their pool, both manatees swam toward and touched the Giants' logo.

Trainers at Mote use exercises like that to keep the manatees' minds and bodies stimulated. Buffet is particularly good at picking the eventual Super Bowl winner. He's now four for four.
