Have you ever wondered how a red panda chooses its mate or how a penguin shows love to its other half? Come to Courtship Tails at the Binghamton Zoo to learn about these and other unique mating rituals of animals at our zoo and around the world!

Courtship Tails is a humorous adult-only Valentine’s Day event held at the Binghamton Zoo that highlights animal rituals in courtship and mating. Couples will be escorted by a tour guide throughout the zoo in heated vans, all while talking about courtship displays and amusing animal mating facts. Stops at Wolf Woods and Woodland Waters will allow guests to enjoy coffee, desserts, and wine tasting.

New this year: Each tour will go on a special behind the scenes stop to visit our snow leopard and African penguins!

Tours will be held on February 11th and 12th, at 10:30am, 12:00pm, 1:30pm, and 3:00pm. Each tour lasts approximately an hour and a half and includes the guided tour, behind the scenes visits, food, drinks, a commemorative framed photo to take home, and a $30 gift card to enjoy dinner with your sweetheart!
