Wild, Wild Love

love in the wild

Lions, beetles and little brown bats show their love in the most natural ways and not just on Valentine's Day -- prairie chickens and deep sea angler fish too. This Valentine's Day, the Nature Conservancy is celebrating the national day of love with the top 10 most bizarre examples of love in the wild.

"Nature can get pretty wild, especially when procreation is at stake," said Sanjayan, lead scientist of The Nature Conservancy. "While we may find mating habits of some critters bizarre, they just might remind you of someone you know."

According to the Nature Conservancy, many of these creatures are unfortunately at risk of disappearing forever because of habitat loss and climate change.

The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.
