The Perfect Gift for Valentine’s Day-A Hissing Cockroach

Yeah, you read that right, a hissing cockroach.  Why waste your money on flowers, candy or jewelry when you can name a hissing cockroach after your sweetheart.  Nothing says love like a cockroach.


The Bronx Zoo is offering this one of a kind gift for Valentine’s Day.  According to their website:

Can’t decide on what to get that special someone for Valentine’s Day? Sometimes the answer is all around us, and right where it’s been for millions of years—like cockroaches! How better to express your appreciation for that special someone than to name one of the Bronx Zoo’s 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroach after them? Best of all, when you purchase this everlasting gift, you’ll help support the Wildlife Conservation Society and its five parks in New York City.

A $10 donation to the Bronx Zoo will get a roach named after your sweetheart.  Wait, it gets better.   A $25 donation will allow you to name a roach after your Valentine, and you’ll also get a Chocolate Roach.  YUM!

I’ll admit I would love to name a cockroach after somebody, but not after my Valentine.

Would you even consider giving this as a gift for Valentine’s Day?
