Have you ever wondered how a red panda chooses its mate or how a penguin shows love to its other half? You can learn all of that and more at Courtship Tails happening at the Binghamton Zoo.
Courtship Tails is a humorous adults-only Valentine’s Day event that highlights animal facts and rituals that relate to courtship and mating. Couples will be escorted by a tour guide throughout the zoo in a heated van, all while talking about courtship displays and amusing animal mating facts. Stops at Wolf Woods and African Waters will allow guests to enjoy coffee, desserts, and a wine tasting. Each tour group will go on a special behind the scenes stop inside the snow leopard holding area.
Tours will be held on February 16 and 17, at 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. Each tour lasts approximately an hour and a half and includes the guided tour, behind the scenes of snow leopard indoor holding, dessert foods, hot drinks, a photo to take home, and Valentine’s Day to remember.
Tours are limited to four couples, and reservations are required for Courtship Tails. Tickets are $115 for non-member couples and $100 for member couples. Guests must be 21 years or older. Limited walking will be required, and you should dress according to the weather.
