WASHINGTON — Valentine’s Day conjures up images of chocolates, flowers, Cupid and naked mole rats.

At least, that’s if the Friends of the National Zoo has anything to do with it.

FONZ, which raises money to support the National Zoo, is offering a special where you can adopt a naked mole rat in your name and the proceeds go toward the conservation of the species. The donation comes with a cheeky naked mole rat valentine.

The $10 donation special on Living Social — a $20 value, FONZ notes — includes a certificate of adoption and a choice from four valentines that have images of naked mole rats and blush-worthy messages such as “I wanna roll around naked with you.”

The offer is available on Living Social until Feb. 14.

For more information about donating and becoming a FONZ member, visit the National Zoo’s website.
