Every Valentine's Day zoos around the country offer "romantic" events revolving around the mating rituals of animals, from late-night tours to behind-the-scenes peeks at clandestine animal behavior. I've always wanted to go to one of those couples-only events.
And now, the Memphis Zoo has another event that I freely admit I would love to witness: the feeding of a 30lb pig to a python. I don't even eat pigs myself, but I am fascinated by the idea of a creature that can open its mouth wide enough to swallow a pig whole. I mean, wow! Where's the web cam, folks?
And judging by the reactions the Zoo is receiving, a lot of other people feel the same way. Ain't nature cool?
