Chocolates are yummy. Roses are pretty...but this is a Valentine's Day gift option we're pretty sure your significant other will never forget!
Like clock work, you see the headline go viral that the El Paso Zoo in Texas will let you name a cockroach after your ex and have it fed to another one of the animals during a 3 day long Anti-Valentine's Day event. The Bronx Zoo in New York has a similar program, where you can get certificate showing your adoption or a package that gives you a pair of roach socks and roach candle in addition to your certificate.
If the roach concept sounds enticing to you, just know that you don't have to give your money away to an out-of-state zoo! Zoo Boise offers a similar program! For $10, you can get an e-mail certificate showing that you've named a Zoo Boise cockroach for someone. However, in Boise naming a cockroach for someone isn't malicious like it is at these other zoos. It's meant to be the ultimate sign that your love can survive anything, just like the creepy crawly.
Of course, if your sweetie doesn't have a sense of humor where they'll find this gift funny the zoo has other Valentine's Day options for 2021 like their "I'm Not Lion...You're My Favorite Package." For an $85 donation to the zoo's programs, you'll receive a lion plush made of recycled materials, chocolates and a handmade reusable bag from Mozambique. The adoption packet also includes a certificate, letter and fact sheet. Your Valentine will also get a wood plaque that they'll be able to decorate for display near the lion's exhibit for one year! If you'd like to pick-up your gift in time for Valentine's Day, you need to order by 5 p.m. on Friday!
