Valentine's Dinner FAQ

Are there going to be REAL animals at the dinner? I really want to pet/cuddle with/hug/kiss all of the animals. Can I do any of those things at the party?
Yes, there will be REAL cool creatures at the Valentine’s dinner. No, you may not pet/cuddle/hug/kiss any of them. They are only to be handled by Fort Worth Zoo animal staff. Keep reading to learn how you’ll be able to (safely) interact with the animals.
