Paul the Octopus, Germany's tried and true soccer "oracle" was a huge hit at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but sadly he passed away in 2010.

As much as Paul is missed, there isn't a shortage of animal oracles for this year's World Cup. Brazil's official oracle is a loggerhead turtle named Cabecao, or Big Head. He correctly predicted his home country would win over Croatia in the World Cup opener.

Brazil also sought the help of a capybara, but it doesn't seem to excited about the fate of the World Cup resting on its shoulders.

Paul's passing didn't push Germany out of the oracle game though. Not to be outdone, the Germans have employed an elephant, armadillo, African clawed frogs and flies to predict the outcome of the World Cup.

Will any oracle ever match up to Paul's nearly 80 percent success rate? Maybe, but no other oracle has a song dedicated to them (yet).
