The Tulsa Zoo is having a special Valentine's weekend event for singles 21 and older. "Nature's Night Owl: The Mating Game" mixer runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, February 13.

"This is going to be our very first time doing a Valentine's Day event for singles," said Tulsa Zoo Community Relations Manager Sarah Floyd. 

"You can make new friends while also learning about the nature of love at the zoo."

For a $20 entry fee, adults can meet some zoo favorites while enjoying fun, games and refreshments.

Floyd said a lot of zoos host activities for the holiday, and they decided to think outside the box for ways to introduce people to the Tulsa Zoo's conservation efforts.

"We have many recognized breeding programs, and we're very proud of that," she said. The Zoo released new photos Tuesday of the three Malayan tiger cubs that were born last August.

Those animals won't be part of the "Mating Game" event, but singles will have a chance to get an up close look at other zoo favorites from owls to tortoises.

The event includes beer, non-alcoholic beverages and activities.
