Punx the Pelican Picks San Francisco 49ers to Win Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Before you place your bets on the team you think will win the Super Bowl, you might want to find out which team this brown pelican has picked.

All eyes were on Punx the Pelican Friday morning at the Texas State Aquarium. He was taken to the Aquarium a year ago, in need of rehabilitation; but on Friday, he picked out this year's Super Bowl winner.

And his pick? The San Francisco 49ers!

"He represents hundreds of others that we have rehabilitated and re-released every single year," said Jason Slade of the Texas State Aquarium. "He's our first pelican, and he always picks things up. He's always enthusiastic, happy to be part of his sessions, and he learns really fast."

So take heed Baltimore fans, and try not to get your hopes up; at least, that's what Punx says.
