Rainforest Pyramid residents use iPads to pick San Francisco to beat Baltimore

GALVESTON, Texas, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With predictions flying in for the Super Bowl, the saki monkeys at the Moody Gardens Rainforest Pyramid® joined in on the fun.


Using iPads as part of an enrichment program at Moody Gardens, the three saki monkeys all selected San Francisco to defeat Baltimore in Sunday's game. Two of the monkeys selected made their selections by painting on the 49ers logo. The third showed his feelings on the game by placing unhappy faces on the Ravens logo.

The first built of the three pyramids, the Rainforest Pyramid is a 10-story glass structure that is home to more than 1,000 species of plants and animals. After a $25 million enhancement in 2011, visitors are able to experience more rainforest life from around the world, including Africa, Asia and the Americas. Many of the animals within the pyramid are free-roaming, like the saki monkeys and cotton-top tamarins.

Along with the Rainforest Pyramid, visitors can also visit the Aquarium Pyramid®, MG 3D Theater, 4D Special FX Theater, Ridefilm, Discovery Museum, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, our four-diamond hotel and highly-rated public golf course at one of the top tourist destinations in Texas.
