Ohio zoo gorilla misses Mega Millions number picks

Published:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A gorilla from the Columbus zoo in Ohio is among those whose picks failed to match the winning Mega Millions numbers for a record $640 million jackpot in the multistate lottery game.

On ABC's Good Morning America, Colo (KOH'-loh) the gorilla was presented 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.

Her onion choices were nine, 12, 21, 31 and 41. Her turnip Mega Ball number was 9. The winning numbers Friday were: two, four, 23, 38 and 46, with 23 as the Mega Ball.

The 55-year-old Colo had a history of giving sage advice. Last year, she correctly picked the NCAA Men's Final Four and its champion, Connecticut.
