The Psychic Octopus - The New Breed

Although now sadly departed, Paul the Psychic Octopus who correctly predicted the outcomes of eight World Cup matches and became a cultural phenomenon in the process has left an interesting legacy.

According to reports, a zoo in the Ukranian city of Alushta is now training a new octopus to follow in his footsteps - or should that be tentacle-steps.

Three month old Pavlik - the name even happens to be a version of the name Paul - came to Alushta from Singapore and has already started 'prediction training'.

Aquarium keeper Vitaly Stukanov said he is learning to open boxes containing mussels and will face his first test when Ukranian football team Shakhtar Donetsk take on Barcelona in the Champion's League.
