The dirty birds are made of vegetables, but still

    San Francisco Zoo

    Come to the San Francisco Zoo, where even the rhinoceros is into the San Francisco 49ers' fighting spirit.

    Boone is the zoo's black rhino. He's named after right guard Alex Boone, who at 6-foot-7, 330 pounds, is no small animal himself.

    But this Boone, the horned Boone, will this week be feasting upon Baltimore Ravens, according to SF Weekly. Or vegetables arranged in the Baltimore Ravens' logo -- but still.

    The 49ers play the Ravens in the Super Bowl on Sunday at 3 p.m. 

    The zoo will be open.
