Just in time for Valentine's Day, join the Academy as we explore lust and love in the animal kingdom. After learning about the love lives of creatures ranging from dinosaurs to bonobos, you'll be able to decide for yourself if you really want to call yourself an animal in bed. Part of the Science and the Seven Deadly Sins Series.
