BOSTON, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Officials at Boston's Franklin Park Zoo said their star gorilla, Little Joe, will be asked Friday to predict the outcome of the Super Bowl.

The zookeepers said Little Joe, whose 19th birthday party is scheduled for the same day as the big game, will be given two boxes Friday, one labeled for the New York Giants and one labeled for the New England Patriots, The Boston Globe reported Thursday.

"We know his heart lies with his family at Franklin Park Zoo, so we've got a feeling his pick will make us proud," the zoo said on its Web site.

Zookeepers said Little Joe, who is considered one of the facility's smartest animals, will then be treated to a Super Bowl-themed birthday party Sunday with special treats for him and his gorilla friends.
