Mote manatees make Super Bowl picks

Sarasota, Florida - They share one tank, but not the same teams. Buffett and Hugh, two manatees at Mote Marine Laboratory, disagree on who will win the Super Bowl.

Today at Mote, trainers dropped two targets into the manatees' tank-one representing each team. Hugh went for the logo of the Pittsburgh Steelers, while Buffett preferred the Green Bay Packers.

Mote officials say Buffett has a pretty good track record. He's predicted the Super Bowl winner correctly for the past three years.
