There’s no monkeying around when it comes to tonight’s $540 million Mega Millions jackpot. Unless, of course, it is with a psychic gorilla.
Colo the gorilla, a main attraction at the Columbus Zoo, is no longer just famous for being the first gorilla born in human care and the oldest gorilla in any zoo in the world, at 55 years old. She’s now known as a lucky and psychic gorilla after correctly picking the NCAA Men’s Final Four and its champion, Connecticut, in last year’s tournament.
With over half a billion dollars at stake, “Good Morning America” knew that a gorilla as good at gaming as Colo was worth a visit.
“GMA” headed straight to the Columbus Zoo and gave Colo a pile of onions marked 1 through 56, for her five main selections, and a pile of turnips marked 1 through 46, for her Mega Ball choice.
Today on “GMA,” Colo revealed her picks.
Her onion choices are 9, 12, 21, 31 and 41. And her turnip Mega Ball number is 9.
Mega Million players, that’s the gorilla’s golden ticket.
