Missing your loved ones? You could send them a video message through this museum

The Virginia Living Museum is now offering personalized video messages from live animals.

Each video is anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds long and costs as little as $10. Order a video online here. 

“Anyone can order a video message for themselves or to send to someone else for a special occasion,” according to the museum’s news release. “Perhaps a socially distant friend, family or colleague will love a personal message delivered by the Virginia Living Museum and a live animal.”

The available animals include a horseshoe crab, turtle, salamander and alligator. See a full list of animals and their video message prices here.

Each video is also available within five minutes via email and you can also buy a VLM zoom background.
