Experts at the Smithsonian's National Zoo have proof that romance is not only for the warm and fuzzy; friskiness is a trait all animals share-be they furry, feathered or finned. Seduction techniques abound in the animal kingdom: Zoo staff recognize when reptiles are feeling rapturous and giant pandas are peaking (hormonally speaking) and ready to procreate. The Zoo has compiled some of the most interesting mating rituals and behaviors on its website.
This Valentine's Day, web visitors can "woo" loved ones with a truly wild gift-bestow an honorary name upon a National Zoo critter after a sweetie, a friend or a family member. "Critter Cupids" include a fanciful valentine to print and present, plus the inestimable satisfaction of supporting wildlife conservation.
