Paul was hatched from an egg at the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth , England, and was then moved to a tank at one of the chain's centres at Oberhausen in Germany.
According to Sea Life's entertainment director, Daniel Fey, Paul demonstrated intelligence early in life: "There was something about the way he looked at our visitors when they came close to the tank.
It was so unusual, so we tried to find out what his special talents were. The animal rights organisation PETA commented that octopuses are some of the most intelligent of invertebrates, with complex thought processes, long- and short-term memories, and different personalities.
They can use tools, learn through observation, and are particularly sensitive to pain, according to the group.
They said it would be cruel to keep Paul in permanent confinement. Sea Life Centres responded that it would be dangerous to release him, because he was born in captivity, and was not accustomed to finding food for himself.
Sealife rejected the offer nevertheless. Each container was marked with the flag of a team, one the flag of Germany, and the other the flag of Germany's opponent.
The box which Paul opened first and ate its contents was deemed to be the predicted winner of the match.
Professor Chris Budd, of the University of Bath , and Professor David Spiegelhalter, of Cambridge University , have both compared Paul's apparent success to a run of luck when tossing a coin.
This feat would be unlikely to happen by chance alone, but not hugely so. Spiegelhalter points out that there are "other animals that have attempted but failed to predict the outcome of football matches"; it is not remarkable that one animal is more successful than the others, and only the successful animals will gain public attention after the fact.
There was discussion as to whether differences in flags design could have influenced Paul     despite Octopus vulgaris being almost certainly colour blind  , or whether he could have been choosing boxes based on differences in their smell.
He failed to predict their defeats by Croatia in the group stage,  and by Spain in the championship's final. Paul's accurate choices for the World Cup, broadcast live by German news channel n-tv , endowed him with celebrity status.
His prediction that Argentina would lose prompted Argentine chef Nicolas Bedorrou to post an octopus recipe on Facebook. There are always people who want to eat our octopus but he is not shy and we are here to protect him as well.
He will survive. Paul correctly predicted the outcome of the semi-final, by choosing the food in the box marked with the Spanish flag.
Paul's notoriety attracted criticism from the President of Iran , Mahmoud Ahmadinejad , who accused him of being a symbol of Western decadence and decay.
Doubts were expressed as to whether it was actually the same octopus in as it had been in Some other German oracles did not fare so well in the World Cup.
The animals at the Chemnitz Zoo were wrong on all of Germany's group-stage games, with Leon the porcupine picking Australia, Petty the pygmy hippopotamus spurning Serbia's apple-topped pile of hay , and Anton the tamarin eating a raisin representing Ghana.
Mani the parakeet of Singapore became famous for correctly predicting the results of all four quarter-final matches. Mani contradicted Paul by picking the Netherlands to win the final, resulting in some media outlets describing the game as an "octopus-versus-parakeet showdown".
Paul was last checked by staff on 25 October , and was in good health, but the following morning he was found dead. He was aged two-and-a-half, a normal lifespan for the species.
His agent, Chris Davies, said "It's a sad day. Sunday 29 September. Monday 30 September. Wednesday 02 October.
