Love is in the Air at the Zoo

Cranes have elaborate courtship dances, male Panamanian golden frogs chirp and “wave” to attract females, and male porcupines have a decidedly strange courtship ritual which involves dousing the female with his urine.  Want to learn more about courtship and mating in the Animal Kingdom?  Join us on Thursday, February 10, 2011, and feel the love at the Zoo’s Adults-Only event, Sex at the Zoo, sponsored by CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield.

This wild Valentine’s Day event is full of fun and surprises as Zoo Veterinarian Dr. Allison Wack that divulges all of the secrets, scandals, and shocking facts of jungle love!  This adult-oriented evening includes live music by Jazz Caravan, an open bar, sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, decadent desserts, and appearances from some of the Zoo’s most popular Animal Ambassadors.

The event is held on the elegant Mansion House porch from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and is appropriate for those 21-and-over. Tickets are $80 per person or $130 per couple and should be purchased in advance at

The birds and the bees will be here, and you should be too!
