Meet Isidoro the ocelot, the World Cup's new power animal. Any old place can get an octopus to predict the result of games, but only the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston can get Babou to do it for them.
Ocelots are native to Brazil, which immediately makes them infinitely more qualified to predict the cup than any octopedial pretender. Isidoro or "Izzy" is total awesome, whether she's chewing on bamboo for no reason or seeing in the dark. Heck, Izzy even has a Twitter account where she can post her feelings on the games before they happen.

We love you Izzy. Never change. Keep being the weird and adorable dwarf leopard thing you are.
