Birds do it. Bees do it. Find out how animals at the Detroit Zoo do it at Love Gone Wild on Thursday, February 14, 2013, 6:30-10 p.m. Open to both singles and sweethearts, this memorable Valentine’s Day event will offer a candid and entertaining look at how zoo animals do the “wild thing”. The evening will include an intimate and revealing look into the “dating” and mating escapades of the Zoo’s animals.

Love Gone Wild will be held in the Zoo’s Ford Education Center. Guests must be 21 and older. The cost is $75 per person for Detroit Zoological Society Members and $85 per person for non-members. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.
