3.  Name a Cockroach at the Bronx Zoo

For the especially romantic (or spiteful), you can name a Madagascar hissing cockroach at the Bronx Zoo for Valentine’s Day. The description from the website is priceless:

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.

This year, you can even up the romance by adding chocolate. For $25, you’ll receive a printed roach certificate and something sweet, made with love by the Nunu Chocolate company in Brooklyn, NY.*

Your donation will also help us protect these misunderstood love bugs, along with a lot of other animals, both big and small.

As they say, roaches make the heart beat faster.
