Flowers wilt. Candlelight fades. Roaches are forever.
Can't decide on what to get that special someone for Valentine's Day? Sometimes the answer is all around us, and right where it's been for millions of years—like cockroaches! How better to express your appreciation for that special someone than to name one of the Bronx Zoo's 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroach after them? Best of all, when you purchase this everlasting gift, you'll help support the Wildlife Conservation Society and its five parks in New York City.
There are two gift approaches available:
1) Send an e-card to your loyal partner, favorite boss, or bug-loving kid to tell them about their Bronx Zoo roach namesake. $10
2) For just $15 more, a hand-painted, artisanal chocolate roach will give your Valentine something to squeal about. There's no reason to bug out with this 100% luxury dark chocolate gift, which we'll ship for free directly to you or to the lucky gift recipient. One roach: $25 Two roaches: $35
