Jackson, the jaguar at Niabi Zoo in Coal Valley, Illinois, made his prediction for which team will win the NCAA Men’s Basketball championship game.

Zookeepers left identical snacks for Jackson on barrels – one representing Louisville and one representing Michigan.

Jackson was eager and ready to make his prediction Monday morning, April 8.

His choice?

Jackson actually helped himself to snacks representing both teams, but his first choice was the snack representing the Cardinals of Louisville.
