Paul, the octopus, is not the only creature predicting World Cup results.

A parakeet, long tailed parrot, named 'Mani' has also been forecasting match results.

Mani has become the talk of the town after predicting that the Netherlands will lift the trophy.

The parrot, an 'assistant' to a roadside astrologer, had earlier predicted Spain-Germany semifinal and all the quarter-final ties.

People are seeking Mani's help to win bets on the World Cup matches, according to a report by the Channel News Asia.

Muniyapan, Mani's owner of Indian origin, said he was now getting 10 customers in an hour compared to 10 on a regular day due to growing popularity of his parrot.
