Will Zoo Be Mine?

VIRTUAL VALENTINES…From our animals, with love.


Share a special Valentine’s message with a wild touch for that “paw-some” person in your life! Virtual Valentines are a unique way to send a customized video greeting to a friend or loved one — featuring their favorite Zoo animal! Enjoy as one of our animal care staff delivers your personalized message alongside a sloth, otter, or other adorable animal.

Each 45-60-second video will feature the animal you select, and you have the option of including a personalized message the animal care staff will deliver to whomever the video is gifted to.

It’s a perfect way to show someone special in your life how much you care while supporting some of your favorite animals at the Zoo!


Choose from one of the following animals to send your special message:

  • De Brazza’s Monkey

    No monkeying around here — let that special someone know how you feel!

  • Elephant

    Wish that special someone in your life an “ele-phantastic” day from our girls!


  • Flamingo

    Let your loved one know why you’ll always flock to them!

  • Giraffe

    Let our herd tell your loved one they are head and shoulders above the rest!


  • Lion

    We’re not “lion” when we say your special person would love a Valentine featuring these big cats!


  • Otter

    You “otter” send that special someone a Valentine featuring these adorable swimmers!

  • Penguin

    Tell your loved one how much you adore “chillin” with them from our feathered friends!

  • Red Panda

    Let them know you’ll be theirs “fur-ever” from Dash and Dr. Erin!

  • Sloth

    Have our two-toed sloths tell that special someone you love them “slow” much!”

  • Snow Leopard

    Pounce on the chance to show your affection with the help of a snow leopard!
