Name Your Ex and Watch the San Antonio Zoo Feed Them to an Animal This Valentine's Day!

The San Antonio Zoo is offering a unique way to send a message to an ex this Valentine's Day. For $10, donors can name a cockroach after their not-so-special someone and feed it to an animal, with the funds going to support the zoo's vision of securing a future for wildlife. 

Those not into bugs can opt for a vegetable for $5 or a rodent for $25 instead. All donors will receive a digital Valentine's Day Card and can opt to send their ex a digital card informing them that a cockroach, rodent, or veggie was named after them and fed to an animal. 

For an even bigger statement, donors can pay $150 for an upgrade that includes a personalized video message to the recipient showing their cockroach, rodent, or vegetable being devoured by an animal. The annual event has been a hit, with over 8,000 donations from all 50 states and over 30 different countries last year. 

To participate, you'll need to submit your exes name online before Valentine's Day. All funds will go to the San Antonio Zoo's vision of securing a future for wildlife in Texas and around the world.
