Orangutan chooses 49ers to win the Super Bowl

A female orangutan and Super Bowl clairvoyant is officially a member of the 49er Faithful.

Each year the primate at Fresno's Chaffee Zoo is given a choice of boxes with Super Bowl team blankets inside.

This year there was one for the 49ers and one for the Baltimore Ravens.

The 25-year-old new mom picked the 49ers blanket out of the box within a few seconds. She didn't even bother opening the box with the Ravens blanket inside!

But beware Niners fans -- her Super Bowl picks have been correct 50 percent of the time.
