NORWALK -

Orange the Seal at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk made her prediction on who will win the Super Bowl this Sunday.

Pictures of the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles' helmets were taped on the window for Orange to choose from.

Orange swam to the picture of the Eagles helmet and pressed her nose to the image, picking them as the predicted winner of the game.

"It's fun, it adds a little something fun to one of our seal training demonstrations,” says Dave Sigowrth, with the aquarium. “We're not doing anything out of the ordinary, we're just kind of taking one of the seal’s behaviors that she knows, and we're just sort of expanding on it and having some fun with it."

Fans of the New England Patriots shouldn't worry just yet.

To date, the seals at the aquarium have only correctly predicted the Super Bowl winner one time in the last six years.
