Death threats for Paul, the psychic octopus

Word on the street is that Paul, the psychic octopus, had better watch his back - wherever that is.

Octopus oracle Paul chooses a mussel from a glass tank marked with a Spanish flag, next to a box with a flag at the SeaLife Aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, on Friday.

Death threats have been pouring in for the clairvoyant critter since he, er, predicted that Spain would beat the Netherlands in the World Cup, CNN is reporting.

Paul made his prediction Friday from the aquarium tank that serves as his home in Oberhausen, Germany. His caretaker, Oliver Walenciak, claimed he is unfazed by the threats to grill him and the like.

"There are always people who want to eat our octopus, but he is not shy and we are here to protect him as well," the website LiveStreetJournal quoted Walenciak as saying.

Paul picks his teams by choosing to eat from a jar bearing the flag of the team's country. He has predicted all of the winners in Germany's games in this World Cup with 100% accuracy, NPR reports.
