Cross-eyed possum predicts the oscars

Since the death of Paul, the psychic octopus, we've been desperately searching for the next animal with the powers of prediction. While you've all been working, sleeping and generally living, we've been putting various animals through a selection of gruelling fortune-telling tasks.

While we were this close to getting an urban fox to reveal how many fingers we were holding up behind his back, it looks like we've been pipped to the post.

Heidi, the cross-eyed possum, was discovered at a zoo in Leipzig, Germany and last night shared her Best Actress Oscar prediction with the rest of the world. We don't want to spoil it for you so you'll have to watch for yourself but needless to say, we want this possum for our own devious lottery-related purposes.
