Eagle Scout Project Bridges a Gap in the New England Farmyard at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo
Prognostic-otters Choose the Rams!
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – February 10, 2022 – Football team loyalties can sink the closest relationships, especially when support for either the Cincinnati Bengals or Los Angeles Rams has friends and family members on opposing sides. Human sports experts have made their own predictions, but if you’re still undecided about which team to support, get in the swim with the North American river otters at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo!
Watch as river otters Sedge and Tahu help you decide which team you “otter” support. Animals have a proud history of picking Super Bowl winners. The Cincinnati Zoo’s beloved hippo Fiona has chosen the Bengals as the game’s winner. Other animal bet makers have included tortoises, porcupines, pandas, tigers, and seals, among others.
Zoo Director Gregg Dancho is going whole hog on the Rams prediction. He counsels against counting your chickens before they’re hatched, but he’s not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. “I know Sedge and Tahu wouldn’t lead me on a wild goose chase,” he said. “On Sunday, I’ll be watching the game like a hawk.”
