Looking for a unique way to celebrate Valentine's Day this year?  There is a new event coming to the Buffalo Zoo that is all about animal instinct.

You've heard the phrase "The birds and the bees" before.  You might have even been given "The Talk" using this analogy.

If you're feeling adventurous enough, and curious about the "love lives" of some of the animals from our Buffalo Zoo, then you might want to check out Wild Side of Love at the Buffalo Zoo.

What is Wild Side of Love all about?

The Wild Side of Love is described by the zoo as "an intimate night of talks presented by the Buffalo Zoo’s President and CEO, Lisa Smith."  You'll learn more about some of the mating rituals of animals that you see every day when you visit.  It will be everything from the animalistic side of things like mating battles to the softer side of courting rituals and how animals show affection to each other.

When is Wild Side of Love?

The Wild Side of Love is coming to the Buffalo Zoo on February 9th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  But don't be late.  The presentation starts at 6:45 p.m. so they will allow the last entry at 6:30.

There's more to it than just the presentation too

This will be more of a "date" type of opportunity.  Not only will you get an incredible presentation, but they will have light snacks to enjoy, a photo booth to click a picture at, and as they say "other surprises that will make your heart skip a beat."

Tickets are available now.  But be aware, that this is an adults-only event.

  • Admission to this 21+ over event

  • Ambassador Animal Meet & Greets
  • Parking in the Buffalo Zoo parking lot
