Psychic octopus Paul replaced by Paul II

Paul the oracle octopus has been replaced in his Oberhausen tank by a successor, who is yet to have his psychic powers tested.

The new Paul swims in.

Paul II has taken the place of Paul I, who brought joy to millions throughout the World Cup with his accurate predictions of games, after he passed away last week.

The young French-born octopus was transferred to the Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen some weeks ago so that Paul I could teach him predictive powers, but sadly the former great died before he could transfer his skills.

"We haven't tested him yet," said a spokeswoman for the Sea Life Centre. "The old Paul was supposed to teach him. But unfortunately he died before he could do that".

The centre will build a memorial to the mystic mollusc, which will include a screen showing the "best and most moving moments" of his life.

"This is not the normal way we deal with our sea creatures," the spokeswoman added. "But Paul was one of the most extraordinary animals we ever had. It seems appropriate to build a monument for him because he achieved such fame during his lifetime.''

It remains to be seen whether Paul II can live up to his name, but many predict that he will be tasked with forecasting the results of the Euro 2012 championships in two years' time.
