April 16, 2014

With the change of seasons into spring, love is in the air for all. The ABQ BioPark Zoo's inhabitants are no exception. This weekend only, a special adults-only tour is being offered that will allow guests an intimate look into many animals' romantic rituals.

On Saturday, April 18 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m., The ABQ BioPark Zoo will be offering our Birds and the Beasts Tour. This 18-and-over tour allows guests to learn about the fascinating breeding habits and mating rituals of many zoo residents.

"Our trained tour guides have great insights into the behaviors of birds and beasts that make these provocative tours fun and educational," said Kathryn Venzor, ABQ BioPark Curator of Education, "We'll be talking about what it takes to keep a species healthy, happy and reproducing, including a more mature discussion on our new baby hippo born just this week."

Tickets for the tour are $6. Regular zoo admission is also required.
