LOXAHATCHEE, Fla. — Every year WPTV NewsChannel 5 turns to area animals to see who they think is going to win the Super Bowl. And this year is no different. We went to Lion Country Safari to get the "official prediction."

Sometimes these predictions get a little funny on who the winner is. This year, "no flags on the play" just a clear-cut winner.

As the chimpanzees of Lion Country Safari patiently waited on island #4.

Workers put out enrichments representing the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The rules? Whichever box gets touched first is who the chimps are predicting to win Super Bowl 55.

After the bridge was turned by a worker in a boat the community crossed the bridge onto Isle 3.

A chimpanzee named *Dandy* sat down in front of both boxes to make her decision.

She knocks down the goal post and officially chooses Tom Brady's Tampa Bay to win the big game.

"She actually did pick the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after their two for two record for Super Bowl picks; we will see how this turns out," said Haley Passesser, PR Director for Lion Country Safari.
