The Octopus as Oracle German Aquariums Compete to Find New Paul

Paul the Octopus became a household name in 2010 after successfully predicting the winners of eight World Cup games. He died in October without a successor. Now, Sea Life aquariums around Germany are starting a competition to see which cephalopod can best predict the outcome of the Women's World Cup games.
