San Francisco fans, rejoice!

A clairvoyant New Orleans otter has made her Super Bowl prediction. And if the frolicking animal has her way, the 49ers are going to take home the trophy on Sunday.

According to CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL, Emma the sea otter, who lives at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans, is no stranger to championship predictions. She reportedly put her skills to the test last year and correctly predicted the winner of the NCAA Final Four.

In the video above, Emma -- presented with two buckets by her trainer -- can be seen throwing a mini football (said to be her "favorite toy") into the container emblazoned with the 49ers logo.

Emma is the latest in a long string of animals who have taken a "psychic" stab at predicting the winner of Super Bowl. Though she's got a few experts on her side, it seems the otter's got quite a bit of competition.

According to NBC News on Friday, a rescue Labrador named Molly, who's up for adoption at the Humane Society of Midland County in Michigan, predicted the Baltimore Ravens to win Sunday's championship.

Jimmy Fallon also jumped on the animal prediction train this week, roping in five cuddly puppies to predict the Super Bowl. According to Fallon's "Puppy Predictor," the Ravens are going to win on Sunday by a landslide. Earlier this week, a grizzly bear in Montana also picked the Ravens to win.

Who will you be rooting for on Sunday? Tell us in the comments.
