Otter Bowl at Lehigh Valley Zoo

Otter Bowl at the Lehigh Valley Zoo

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - It was a big day for Leia the Otter at the Lehigh Valley Zoo. "We are doing our annual otter bowl. Every year for the past 5 years we've had our otters choose who they think is going to be the winner of the super bowl" says Elizabeth Bernardo, the lead keeper at the Lehigh Valley Zoo.

Leia did some light stretching before she made her big decision. Stretching tall and loosing her neck. "She was actually wrong last year but she was right the three years prior to that so we'll see if she gets her region back on top" says Bernardo. 

Keepers at the zoo placed two brown paper- mache looking footballs in Leia's habitat. One with the Falcons logo on it and other with the Patriots on it. This year Leia's looking for a comeback. She's got a lot to prove. And with a quick sprint she made her decision. She's calling the Falcon's for a win. "Last year it took her a little bit longer so I don't know if she knows something we don't" says Bernardo.
