Ever wanted a cockroach named after you?

The Bronx Zoo is offering people the chance to name one of its Madagascar hissing cockroaches in honour of someone for Valentine’s Day.

The zoo in New York City started offering the name-a-roach program in 2011 as a fun way to fundraise. For $13.70 (US$10), you get an emailed certificate telling them one of the insects from the world’s largest roach species has been named for them.

As an added bonus this year, the zoo is also offering to send along chocolates or a Madagascar cockroach plush toy for higher donations.

The money goes to the Wildlife Conservation Society.
