Zoo Lets You Name a Cockroach After Your Ex And Lets You Watch It Get Eaten By a Meerkat

Still looking to get yourself a present this Valentine’s Day even though you don’t have a significant other? Well the El Paso Zoo has you covered. The zoo will name a cockroach after your ex and then you get to feed it to a Meerkat live on video.

All you have to do is message the zoo on Facebook with your ex’s name, then on February 14th tune in to watch the live event “quit bugging me” to see your roach get devoured by a Meerkat. The name of the ex’s will also be displayed on the Meerkat’s exhibit as well on their Facebook page starting February 11th.

They’re doing this to get the community involved in their daily activities. It’s also a fun way to promote the zoo and get people who don’t even know about the zoo to come and visit the zoo. The zoo calls the it “the perfect Valentine’s day gift.”

In addition, this year they are going to collect donations. If they hit a 1,000 dollars the zoo director will EAT a cockroach, talk about awesome!

Meerkats favorite snack are cockroaches and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s day than to name a cockroach after your ex and watch it get eaten on a live stream?
