Is coming up with a Valentine’s Day outing giraffing you crazy?

That night the Animals of Africa section will take on a romantic atmosphere with themed lighting, and there will be flowers and chocolates for every lover.

Beer specially crafted by DeadBeach Brewery along with a commemorative cup to sip out of, games, and live music from Dulce Mal will make the night that much more fun.

I think you’ll toad’ally love it. For real, I ain’t lion.

They’re even going to have zoo Education Specialists there discussing wildlife courtship and mating rituals. You know you’ve always been curious. Who knows, all that mating talk might unleash the animal in you. Rawr, am I right?

Oh, and you'll also be able to walk around the Africa section of the El Paso Zoo and visit with the animals that call Africa their home, like the Meerkats, giraffes, and Hodari -- the new mane man at the El Paso Zoo. Hodari recently joined the zoo’s pride of African lionesses, Zari and Malaika.
