Central Valley Orangutan 'Predicts' 49ers Will Win Super Bowl

FRESNO (CBS SF) -- It looks like we can now count one prize primate in the Central Valley among the 49ers Faithful.

Her name is Siabu and she's an orangutan (and new mom) at Fresno's Chaffee Zoo.

This weekend, Siabu keepers gave her a big box containing two blankets -- one for the 49ers, the other for the Baltimore Ravens.

Within seconds of opening the box, the orangutan clearly showed her preference for the Niners -- or at least for the team's red and gold colors.

Zoo representatives say Chiabu's previous Super Bowl picks have been right only about half the time. So make your bets accordingly.
