Head Over Heels
“When Burma, the zoo’s female gibbon, goes into estrus she bobs her head and body up and down to show Caruso, the male, she’s receptive to breeding,” says Zoological Manager of Primates Michael Brown-Palsgrove. Learn such fun facts about animal courtship rituals at the Animal Attractions Breakfast on Saturday, February 9.
Brown-Palsgrove, Davee Center for Epidemiology and Endocrinology Director Rachel Santymire, Ph.D., and Population Management Center Director Sarah Long, M.S., will share their insights into animal introductions and breeding behavior during this savory, early Valentine’s Day event at Regenstein Center for African Apes.
