About eight days before the Super Bowl the people at the Chaffee Zoo already knew who was going to win.

They let an orangutan pick the winner Saturday.

The game played out like this, she tore open a big box, with two smaller boxes inside. Then, she walked away to think about it for a little while.

When she came back, she jumped inside the box and made her decision based on how the teams look on paper. After chewing on it a little longer, she finally picked the Colts colors and ran around in the blue and white uniform.

Of course, she also went for a little roll in the cage with the Saints uniform, but in her Super Bowl prediction, she's sticking with Peyton Manning and the Colts.
