EST. 1868

From the courtship antics of Adelie penguins to the reproduction adaptations of barnacles, the mating rituals of some animals are wonderfully bizarre. Head to the sexiest category of est. 1868 this Valentine’s Day for a date with a difference – you won’t be short of conversation starters afterwards!

10am to 5pm daily until Sunday 14 April 2019, Special Exhibitions Gallery.
Free.
