How did Paul make his predictions? 保羅是怎樣預測比賽結果的?

The staff of the Sea Life Centre lowered two boxes of mussels into Paul’s tank, one with a German flag while the other carried the flag of a competitor. The box Paul opened first was considered as his predicted winner.

水族館的人員把兩盒載有青口的盒子放進保羅的火箱裏,兩個盒子上分別貼上了德國及其對手的國旗。哪一個盒子先被保羅打開,便被視為比賽的得勝者。

Octopuses are a type of marine creature that has eight arms and a bulbous head. Their arms have rows of suckers on the underside which allow them to grab and taste food. They have nine brains and three hearts so that they can react very fast to defend themselves against or escape from predators. In order to hunt effectively, they can even change their skin colour and texture to blend in with the environment.
