Most of you seemed to like Sydney Zoo’s offer of naming their resident brown snake after someone’s snakey ex lover this Valentines Day, but now another zoo has taken it to the next level and we’re not sure if you’ll love it or loathe it.

El Paso Zoo in Texas is inviting jilted lovers to get a sense of revenge this Valentines Day by naming a cockroach after their pest-like ex, then having said cockroach FED to the meerkats.

If you think this will bring you a sense of closure this Valentines Day then you can submit the name of a deserving 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 before feeding the meerkats their lunch.

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

“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!”

I mean I could think of better ways to celebrate the day. Champagne and chocolate perhaps?

The public is invited to attend the feeding frenzy but Aussies can still watch the event on Facebook Live or via the meerkat webcam available on the zoo’s website www.elpasozoo.org.

Is your ex about to become a meerkat’s lunch?
