A psychic turtle has predicted Brazil will win their World Cup opening match against Croatia.

Big Head had the choice of eating a piece of fish from under a Brazilian or Croatian flag, or a ball that suggested a draw.

The Brazilian turtle opted for the  host country and is the latest in an expanding  list of psychic animals to predict the outcome of the big games.

We look at fortune tellers from past and present.


A kangaroo from Australia Zoo in Queensland, originally named Flopsy but now renamed Predictaroo, was offered two bowls of food labelled with the competing teams’ names.

She quickly demonstrated who would score first in the upcoming game between Australia and Chile, making an arrow straight for her home country.
