If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s this: don’t trust your hard-earned money to an ape. I speak from experience here, as I’ve lost a bundle in the stock market (damn you Mr. Ruffles!). But when deciding which Super Bowl team to back, perhaps collecting a consensus of animal predictions is the way to go.

If so, you have as many as you need right here below. Interesting note: sea creatues prefer the 49ers, favoring them 3-0. Likewise, two out of three primates like San Francisco. Overall, however, the animals went for Baltimore, 10-7.

Meanwhile, directors of the Baltimore Zoo and the San Francisco Zoological Society have made a bet on the game. If Baltimore wins, the San Francisco Zoo must name its black rhino exhibit after the Ravens. If the 49ers win, the Baltimore Zoo names their raven exhibit the 49ers Exhibit.

Below is a video of various Baltimore Zoo animals destroyed paper 49ers footballs. I see no reason to drag warthogs into this, but they did:

 

Then, SF Zoo’s Boone the Black Rhino (named for 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone) devoured a Ravens logo made of vegetables.
