Octopus Paul II

Octopus Paul II, successor to the tentacled tipster that wowed the world with his uncanny knack of correctly predicting World Cup football games, swims in his aquarium after he was presented to the media on November 3, 2010 in at the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, western Germany. The new cephalopod, also named Paul in honour of his world-famous predecessor who passed away last week, was lowered gently into his tank in a ceremony carried live on national television. Paul II came from Montpellier, southern France. TOPSHOTS / AFP PHOTO / PATRIK STOLLARZ
