6th Annual Primate Pick @ Hogle Zoo (SLC 1/31)

Can Eli The Orangutan Make it Six? 

(Salt Lake City, UT) ­ -- Cue the NFL theme song... the primates are at it again!

For the past six years, all eyes have turned toward the Great Apes to answer the most pressing question -WHO WILL WIN THE SUPER BOWL?

Join us for our 6th annual Primate Pick, Thursday, January 31, 10:30 a.m., in the Great Ape building - as Eli the Orangutan predicts who will win the Super Bowl.


Eli, the big male orangutan, will enter his enclosure where he will be faced with logos of the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. Whichever 'helmet' he touches first will be the winner of the big game!

This is a great chance to get footage of our primates active and playful, and a great local tie-in to other Super Bowl coverage. 

Crews should park in the Western-most section of the main lot, near the white temporary tent (the main entrance is under construction). Check in with Erica Hansen by 10:15 a.m. so photographers have plenty of time to set up - Eli acts fast!
