Valentines Gone Feral

Sexy animal cards to woo your sweetie

Who better than Mother Nature to put some freak in your Cupid’s bow? This Valentine’s day, break free of boring Homo sapien dating rituals and woo your sweetie, wild-style.* Just hit print, break out the scissors, and put those opposable thumbs to work.

Male giraffes investigate a potential partner’s fertility by tasting her urine, so send this Valentine if you’d like a sip.

Male manatees treat each other right, kissing muzzles above water before tumbling to the bottom for some good old fashioned porkin’, lasting 4-8 times that of hetero couplings.
