Elusive, Resilient, and Sometimes Scary. Love is Like a Roach.

Bitter about an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend that treated you wrong? Still looking for that perfect Valentine’s Day Gift? Don’t worry the Bronx Zoo has you covered whether you are single or smitten.

Through the Zoo’s Name a Roach program, a $10 donation gets you the rights to name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after anybody you want.

This Valentine’s Day, let your special someone know your love is eternal. Name one of the Bronx Zoo’s Madagascar hissing cockroaches for your sweetie. Tens of thousands of roaches remain nameless and would make a great symbol of your love. For $10, we’ll send your loved one a digital certificate (like this one) to cherish for years to come, featuring the name of your Valentine’s roach.

If you step up your game to a $25 donation, you get to name the roach, get a fancy certificate, and also get a chocolate gift from the Nunu Chocolates in Brooklyn.

Head over to the Name a Roach page to get your revenge show the love by naming your own cockroach!
