Three months after passing away, Paul the Octopus has received a memorial.
The Sea Life Center unveiled on Thursday a six-foot plastic replica of the octopus oracle clutching a soccer ball in his arms. Inside the ball, Paul's ashes were placed in a gold-leaf urn, which also resembles the octopus.
During the World Cup last year, Paul's caretakers at the Oberhausen Sea Life Center in western Germany would place two glass boxes containing a mussel and a flag to represent each competing team. Paul would open the box of the winning team first. He did this eight times in a row, correctly picking the winner of each of Germany's seven matches, as well as the outcome of the final match. The odds of achieving the same results with a coin toss are one in 256.
