EL PASO, Texas (KSNW) – The El Paso Zoo is offering up one of the most unique Valentine’s Day gifts to anyone willing to participate this holiday.

The zoo said it will name a cockroach after your ex and then feed the cockroach to Meerkats for the world to see. 

How does it work you ask? 

Simply send a message to the El Paso Zoo Facebook Page with your ex’s name and zookeepers will name a cockroach after them. The zoo said it will be posting the first and last name initial of your exes to their Facebook page starting Feb. 11. 

People will be able to watch live on Facebook or on the zoo’s Meerkat webcam on Valentine’s Day at 2:15 p.m. and see the mammals munch on the insects.
