Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and the Bronx Zoo is once again offering the only gift that will be around longer than anyone – the original Name-a-Roach is back. The Bronx Zoo is offering the opportunity to symbolically name its 50,000-plus giant Madagascar hissing cockroaches for Valentine’s Day 2019. The tongue-in-cheek gift comes with a colorful certificate emailed to your loved one announcing that a cockroach has been named in his or her honor.
