Tassie devil predicts election outcome

Tasmanian devil Niki took time out from raising her six week old pouch-young to predict Labor's Bill Shorten as the winner of Saturday's federal election.

With tightening opinion polls both nationally and in the electorate of Bass, Niki took less than 10 seconds to chose the image of Shorten over that of incumbent Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Niki then spent the next minute enjoying the lunch attached to the image of the Labor leader before eventually giving ScoMo a look in as her dessert.

Niki joins Burt, the NT crocodile, in predicting Shorten as the victor come Saturday night.
