Did you know some moth species sneak up on larger animals and poke them in the eye so the moth can drink their tears? Eat, Prey, Love is a unique opportunity for adults to learn about animals and some of their odd eating habits in an honest and humorous forum. The evening includes wine, appetizers, a Zoo tour and a presentation on animal feeding behavior by Tidewater Community College biology professor Lisa Behm.
Holding a master’s degree in Biology from Old Dominion University, Behm is a former zookeeper and animal registrar at the Virginia Zoo, where part of her duties included assisting the Zoo’s veterinarian. She began teaching evenings at TCC while working at the Zoo, becoming a full-time biology faculty member in 2003.

Space for the event is limited and preregistration is required. Ages 21 and up only.
Cost per pair:
Zoo Members, $55; Non-Members, $65 for nonmembers. Check-in begins promptly at 3 p.m.
