The Mote Marine Aquarium in Sarasota said Buffett the manatee, who has correctly chosen the winners of the past six Super Bowls, swam to a picture of the Broncos' logo Friday and bumped it with his snout, indicating a prediction of a Denver victory in the game this upcoming Sunday, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported Monday.
"He's definitely on a roll," said Kat Nicolaisen, supervisor of manatee research at Mote Marine Aquarium. "If he picks 10 years in a row, we'll have to sign him up with SportsCenter or a Vegas bookie or something."
Buffett's half-brother, Hugh, cast a dissenting opinion Friday and swam to the Seahawks logo. Hugh has correctly chosen four winners in the past six Super Bowls.
Nicolaisen, who donned a Denver jersey for Friday's event, said she was pleased by Buffett's prediction.
"This year is very special for me," she said. "I was born in Littleton, Colo. I was 13 the last time the Broncos made the Super Bowl."
