Paul was a normal octopus when in England. He made no predictions while at the Weymouth Sea Life Park.

Paul seems to have gotten better with age. His prediction record at this year's FIFA World Cup is 100% accurate. During the 2008 European Cup he had correctly predicted the outcome of 80% of Germany's games. He got the finals wrong too, predicting a Germany win Spain won.

Till Friday Paul made predictions only about Germany games. This was the first time he predicted a game which would not feature Germany the World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands that the Octopus predicts Spain will win.

Modus Operandi: An aquarium worker lowers two plastic boxes into his tank. Each has the flag of the two teams playing a match. Both boxes have a mussel each. The box Paul picks a mussel from to eat is the team he says will win.
