Meet the coolest animal psychic ever

Whether or not you're a soccer fan, you have to admit a psychic soccer-playing elephant sounds pretty cool.
Remember Paul, the octopus who wowed the world by correctly predicting 12 of 14 games in the 2010 World Cup?


Paul died in 2010, but his home country of Germany has a new animal "psychic:" Nelly the elephant.

Paul chose winners by picking a treat from a tank with the winning country's flag on it. Nelly, though, is stepping up her game by showing off her soccer skills, kicking a goal for the team she thinks will win.

Though Nelly has a strong track record for other tournaments, she's just made her first predictions for the World Cup 2014, and they're pretty radical. A win for #13 US over her #2-ranked home country? We'll take it.

We'll have to wait until June 26 to see how that last prediction plays out. In the meantime, you can watch Team USA's first match, against Ghana, on June 16.
