  The World Cup

  The animal oracle predictions for the World Cup have begun, with host nation Brazil getting a vote of confidence from its chosen turtle tipster.

  By making a patriotic choice of food, loggerhead turtle Big Head predicted Tuesday that the host nation will beat Croatia in the opening game of the World Cup on Thursday.

  Big Head is Brazil’s answer to Germany’s Paul the Octopus, who started the psychic animal craze during the 20xx World Cup and spawned a slew of imitations around the world.

  At the Praia do Forte turtle sanctuary north of Salvador, the 25-year-old male sea turtle was given the choice between eating a fish hung from a Brazilian flag or a Croatian flag.

  After attempting to eat the fish hung from a football indicating a draw, Big Head chose the one representing Brazil.

  The small crowd of onlookers cheered in appreciation of Big Head’s choice.

  请叫我Fuleco(Please call me Fuleco)

  Brazil’s 20xx FIFA World Cup mascot, a blue and yellow armadillo...now officially has a name. Following an online vote, the armadillo was baptized on Sunday as "Fuleco", a word which organisers say transmits a message of environmental awareness.

  The name of the three-banded armadillo, an endangered species indigenous to Brazil, was announced on national television. The name Fuleco was chosen by 48 percent of the 1.7 million votes, trumping the two other options, Zuzeco and Amijubi. While nature’s version is light brown in color, FIFA’s armadillo is yellow with green eyes and a blue shell - the colours of the Brazilian flag - and will be holding a football. Three-banded armadillos live mainly in Brazil’s arid northeast and are threatened by destruction to their natural environment. They are unusual among armadillos in that they can roll up into a ball to defend themselves from predators.

  20xx年巴西世界杯的吉祥物已经确定为一只的三色犰狳(又称:铠鼠)。犰狳在巴西是濒危动物。此前,巴西世界杯组委会在其国内开展了为吉祥物征名的活动,总共170万人参与了此次活动并从三个候选名字“Amijubi”、“Fuleco”和“Zuzeco”中选出Fuleco确定为20xx年世界杯吉祥物的官方名称。

  Fuleco是Futebol(足球)+Ecologia(生态)的合成词,吉祥物本身和名字将环保理念融入了足球,体现了这届世界杯注重环保的理念。
