The otter is from the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas located in New Orleans. As for Emma’s background on championship game predictions, she was also able to correctly predict the winner of the NCAA Final Tour last year.
As to how the prediction was made, Emma’s aquarium was thrown two buckets by her trainer. Then using her favorite toy, a mini football, Emma threw the ball into the bucket which was labeled with the name of the 49ers. Meanwhile, a rival of Emma named Molly, a rescue Labrador, predicted the Baltimore Ravens as the winner. This was backed up by a group of puppies who also predicted the same. And earlier this week, the same prediction was also made by a Grizzly bear in Montana where the Ravens, it said, would win the game.
Ever since Paul the Psychic Octopus died, there have already been quite a number of animals whose owners have claimed them to be psychics. However, it may be said that Emma is the one who has the best record for predicting championship winners as demonstrated in her current prediction.
Animals can also be psychics though they do not really base it on astrology and numerology like people do. It may be said as more of a coincidence; however, it does not eliminate the fact that psychic powers do exist.
