Valentine’s Day at the BioPark

By Adam Fox [ Sat Feb 12 2011 6:00 AM ]

The whole gussied-up, dinner-and-a-movie Valentine's date is so passé. Why not skip the formalities, get right down to the nitty-gritty and embrace our animalistic instincts? Today starting at 2 p.m., head down to Birds and the Beasts at the Rio Grande Zoo (903 10th Street SW) or Love Bugs at the Rio Grande Botanic Garden (2601 Central NW). There, find out what really goes on between the animal kingdom's sheets and learn about the reproductive techniques and mating rituals of insects, arachnids and other wildlife. Both programs cost $10, and space must be reserved by calling the Zoo at 764-6214 or the Botanic Garden at 848-7180. Sorry, kids; this primal performance is for adults ages 18-and-up.
