Animals 'predict' World Cup results

Various different animals are being used to predict World Cup football results after Paul the Octopus' success in 2010.

During the last World Cup in 2010, Germany's Paul the Octopus correctly predicted the results of 12 out of 14 football matches.

Paul died in October 2010 so this year other species have emerged from the animal kingdom to claim his crown for picking winners.

China's panda picker Ying Mei got off to a successful start, opting for the box of food emblazoned with a Brazilian flag, before the host nation beat Croatia 3-1.
