Moody Gardens Galveston Island said two saki monkeys were given an iPad and each tapped a different team's logo to predict the outcome of Sunday's big game, The Houston Chronicle reported Wednesday.

A third monkey, named Frankie, was given the iPad to cast the deciding vote, and he made his preference known by drawing frown faces on the Ravens' logo.

"Frankie put frown faces all over the Ravens' team [logo], so I think he's pretty determined that San Francisco is gonna win," said Jerri Hamachek, marketing and public relations manager at Moody Gardens.

Hamachek said the park's biologists use iPads as part of en enrichment program designed to increase the activities of the monkeys while in captivity.
