    Following in the footsteps of other famous animals like Paul the octopus, two-headed tortoise Magdalena has taken on the role of tipster for the ice hockey World Championships in Slovakia.

    Magdalena an African spurred tortoise from the Slovakian town of Zilina was born with two heads following a genetic defect.

    She will try to repeat the success of prediction supremo Paul who managed to guess the outcome of eight different World Cup football games last year.

    Instead of football the double-headed animal will be picking winning teams in a number of ice hockey matches for the 75th world tournament.

    The little tortoise's first attempt at predicting winners turned out to be correct and her owner Roma Gresak is hopeful she will be carry on her success.

    She makes her predictions by moving around a small model of an ice hockey rink.

    Mr Gresak is hesitant about overworking Magdalena's talent.

    'She will forecast selected matches,' he said.

    Her next match to predict is between Norway and Sweden.
