San Antonio Zoo’s Cry Me a Cockroach a remedy for broken hearts on Valentine’s Day

Looking for some solace on Valentine’s Day this year? The San Antonio Zoo has an answer at its second annual Cry Me a Cockroach fundraiser: Symbolically name a cockroach or frozen rodent after your ex, and a zookeeper will feed it to the animals during a streamed feeding frenzy on Sunday, February 14.

The price for each cockroach is $5, and rodents are $25.

This year, a herbivore option is also available for $5.
