Sloth predicts a Germany win

A two-toed sloth at the Toronto Zoo predicts Germany will win the final match of the World Cup on Sunday.

Bob the sloth was shown an Argentine flag and a German flag by zoo employees today — and in an uncharacteristic burst of speed, reached out and grabbed the German one.

Zoo employees say Bob has called the outcome of 14 previous World Cup matches this year, with a 71 per cent success rate.

They say they suspected Bob would choose Argentina, since sloths are South American animals.

Bob seemed to show some regional bias when he incorrectly chose Brazil to beat Germany in the semifinals.
