When it comes to foreseeing the World Cup final champions, Australia also has a psychic beast to go toe-to-toe - or tooth to sucker pod - with Germany's Paul the octopus.
 
Harry the croc proved his supernatural powers last Friday at Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin's city centre when he predicted that Spain was going to win the final in 2010, the Courier Mail reports.

By choosing between two chickens draped with the competing teams' flags, Harry not only picked the winner, he even picked the final score - a tightly fought 1-0 victory for Spain over the Netherlands.

That put him well ahead of his animal tipster rivals, who only predicted the winning team, not the result.

But soothsayer Paul the "psychic" octopus can still lay claim to a perfect run, having finished the World Cup with eight perfect predictions.
