El Paso Zoo: Name a Cockroach After Your Ex for Valentine’s Day

The El Paso Zoo is offering the chance to name a cockroach in honor of yours or your friend’s ex this Valentine’s Day through the “Quit Bugging Me” event at 2:15 p.m. on February 14.

“This is a fun way to get the community involved in our daily enrichment activities,” said El Paso Zoo Event Coordinator Sarah Borrego.

“The meerkats love to get cockroaches as a snack and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by feeding them a cockroach named after your ex!”

People can submit the name of their ex by sending a direct message to the El Paso Zoo Facebook page by February 10.

On Valentine’s Day, zoo staff will decorate the meerkat exhibit with the submitted names and shortly after, in honor of those names, the meerkats will be fed cockroaches.

The public is invited to attend the “Quit Bugging Me” event. The zoo will also show the event on Facebook Live and the meerkat webcam available on the zoo’s website.
