Celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Zoo

Looking for a unique way to celebrate the love between you and your valentine this February? Reserve your spot for Courtship Tails at the Binghamton Zoo!

These adult-only tours highlight exotic and quirky mating rituals of animals all around the world. Did you know that North American porcupines have a “hands-off policy” except for one 12-hour period once a year? Or that female leopards are extremely flirtatious when they are in heat, and will walk back and forth in front of a male, brush up against him, and swat him with her tail? These are only a few of the interesting facts guests will learn at this love-themed event!

Tours will be held on February 16th and 17th, at 10:30 am, 12:00 pm, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm. Each tour lasts approximately an hour and a half and includes a guided tour, wine tasting, dessert foods, drinks, and a commemorative photo to take home.

New this year: Guests will go behind the scenes to visit Tushar, our snow leopard!
