Comments Off on Take Your Valentine to the Aquarium’s After Hours Event

With a drink in one hand, your partner or pal in the other, get set for an intimate and oh-so scintillating After Hours party at the Vancouver Aquarium on Valentine’s Day. Pucker up, buttercup!

Vancouver Aquarium scientists agree that blushing can be considered camouflage when discussing topics such as coral sex. Indulge in an alluring and amusing exploration of the sex lives of aquatic animals during the Valentine’s Day-themed After Hours on Thursday, Feb. 14 at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise initiative.

In addition to exploring the Aquarium’s galleries at night, you can also enjoy special programs covering a range of hot topics. Discover which aquatic animal has the biggest penis to body size ratio, which creatures engage in courting, and which species mates for 14 hours straight during a sex talk by Vancouver Aquarium veterinary fellow Dr. Megan Strobel. You can also participate in a naughty puppet show that will have you in stitches or watch the Meet a Penguin program that will bring you toe to webbed toe with these loveable birds. Don’t miss the thrilling shark sex program exploring the four (that’s right – four!) ways that sharks reproduce.
