TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Still looking for a unique Valentine's Day or any other occasion gift for your significant other?  How about adopting an animal native to southern Arizona?  

Thanks to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, you can do just that! 

According to the AZSDM website you can adopt (symbolically of course, you can't take them home!) a hummingbird, a javelina, a Mexican gray wolf, a prairie dog or even a gila monster.  

There are two packages - the basic at $35 and enhanced at $50.  According to the website adoption fees help provide "the highest quality care" for these unique animals.
