Feeling a little jaded about love this Valentine’s Day? There’s a roach for that.

The San Antonio Zoo will do the honor of naming a cockroach after your ex and feed it to a bird, mammal, or reptile. You’ll even receive a certificate as proof!

It is all a part of the zoo’s second annual “Cry Me a Cockroach!” fundraising event.

You can also watch it go down in a Facebook Live event, so if you need more people to see it happen…ya know.

Best of all, you can cleanse yourself of your ex’s bad vibes for just $5!

If you feel like your ex was more of a snake, the zoo will allow customers to name a frozen rat to be fed to a reptile for $20 more.

But wait there’s more… this year there is a veggie option for just $5. The zoo will feed romaine lettuce and other leafy greens to vegetarian animals.

You have until February 13 to register on the zoo’s website. Proceeds benefit going towards zoo expansion.
