Octopus Paul is two years old. He is old as Octopus' go. The largest octopus' live longest - up to 3 years.

The Oracle Octopus is not German by birth. He is English, having been born in Weymouth in England. Many from England had hope that sheer loyalty to his place of birth would make him predict an England win in their knock-out match against Germany. He did not.
