    Football mad Thailand has their own answer to Paul the Octopus - but they're a lot bigger.


    The elephants at Anantara's Golden Triangle's Elephant Camp in Chiang Rai have an unusual way to predict the winner - and by all accounts these elephants have had a 100% accuracy rate in their predictions.


    The decider is not by Paul the octopus but by Anantara's Nong Phil the one month old elephant.


    If you don't want to know who wins the finals then this video my be a spoiler for you.
