It's Valentine's Day! But honestly, who needs a Valentine when there's pizza to be had? Here's a little inspiration from the animal kingdom, because nothing says romance quite like the passionate love affair between (m)animals and pizza. Turns out it really is the universal food!

N.B. We do not officially endorse feeding your pets pizza. Because that's probably not the best idea. That said, if you're going to do it anyway, please send your pictures to [email protected]* Immediately. We want to see them. And put them in a slideshow.
