Valentine's Day is only weeks away and sure, you could do the typical and predictable thing that you do every year. You know what I'm talking about- chocolates and dinner and maybe some flowers if you're feeling extra generous. Or...you could shock your love and do something completely different this year.

If you've ever wondered how a red panda chooses its mate or how a penguin shows love to its other half, you won't want to miss Courtship Tails, presented by the Binghamton Zoo. This is where you'll have the chance to learn all about the unique mating rituals of animals.

Courtship Tails is a humorous adult-only Valentine’s Day event where you and your date will be escorted by a tour guide through the zoo while learning about love in the animal world. You'll also enjoy a special behind the scenes visit at the spotted-neck and African penguin exhibit.

Tours for Courtship Tails will be held on Saturday, February 10th and Sunday, February 11th at 10:30 am, 12:00 pm, 1:30 pm, and 3:00pm each day. Each tour will run an hour and a half and includes desserts, drinks, a commemorative photo, and a $25.00 restaurant gift certificate.

Reservations are an absolute must, so reach out to the Binghamton Zoo and secure your spot for this fun Valentine event before it's too late!
