Poor Paul:probably end up on someone's plate as calamari!
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP)Paul the Octopus, the tentacled tipster who fascinated football fans by correctly predicting results at this years World Cup, died Tuesday.
Paul had reached octopus old age of 2 1/2 years and died in his tank on Tuesday morning in an aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, spokeswoman Ariane Vieregge said.
Paul seemed to be in good shape when he was checked late Monday, but he did not make it through the night. He died of natural causes, Vieregge added.
Hi, Yeah I saw this on the news! Shame! lol now they will have to go fishing for another one!
I'm sorry to hear that Paul died. He brought octopuses to people's attention, and hopefully some of them realized that octopuses are actually clever creatures, even if they're not psychic! I wish they lived longer.
excellent with onions and olives.
Only you better not wait till they die of their natural.
Young ones are already a pain to soften.
Rest in Peace, Paul! Hope you don't give anybody indigestion :0)
