Zoo cuties help spread love on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is in just three days. But don’t panic if you haven’t made cards for your pals. We’ve arranged for some of the cutest characters at the National Zoo to come to the rescue.

A brown kiwi chick named Manawa Ora, adult and baby degus (think big gerbils), one of the new lion cubs and, of course, panda cub Bao Bao were happy to help spread some love. Just download the cards, and cut them out, fold along the dotted lines and glue the blank sides together. (Or skip the glue and write a message inside.) Then address the card and sign your name.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
