  4. From today's post on Facebook:

    What's more important? Speed? Opportunity? Stamina? Ritual? Attraction? Offering a gift? Stealth? Pheromones? Deceit? Love? The natural world is full of weird, fascinating, endearing, and even alarming mating rituals. The specifics vary between species, and can include the male giving gifts, performing a dance, or simply dominating the female. However they do "it", the goal is always the same: reproduction. One thing is for sure though, mating in nature really is wild. In honor of Valentine's Day, we hope you enjoy this video of creatures in nature who are clearly, "in love"! #JungleDragon
