Texas Zoo Will Name a Rat After Your Ex and Feed It To a Snake on Valentine’s Day

When you’re in a happy relationship, either dating or married, Valentine’s Day can be a wonderful holiday. Boxes of chocolates and bouquets of flowers are common gifts. A romantic dinner or date might be the plan for the evening, just the two of you.

Valentine’s Day isn’t a romantic holiday for everyone though. What if you just got out of a bad relationship? What if you’re bitter at your ex? It’s safe to say that the last thing you’d want to do is think loving, happy thoughts. You’d probably just be happy when Cupid’s favorite holiday is over.

The San Antonio Zoo has you covered. They have come up with a very unique way to get revenge on your ex.

For just $25, you can have a rat named after your ex, and the zoo will feed that rat to a snake at the zoo. You don’t even have to live anywhere near San Antonio to see you ex (or, the rat named after your ex) get eaten. The zoo will be live-streaming the whole event.

Is $25 too much to pay for revenge? Then, the San Antonio Zoo has another option you might like. For just $5, you can have a cockroach named after you ex, and the zoo will feed it to a bird or another animal. Yes, you can still watch your ex get eaten via livestream.

The Facebook post about the event is getting mixed reviews. It seems that people are either for it or against is. One person wrote, “You make me SICK !!!what sort of a DEPRAVED mind thinks up something like this that just PROMOTES the sadistic side of humans??.It had best NOT be live feeding !!!you make me sick.” The zoo responded by explaining that rats and cockroaches are normally fed to animals, so it’s not really a change from the zoo’s normal feeding schedule.

On the flip side, some people are excited about the zoo’s idea. One person commented, “COOL! Should be very popular!” Another person wrote, “hahaha this is fantastic i wish we would have thought of this.”

What do you think of the San Antonio’s Zoo’s Valentine’s Day idea? Are you going to name a rat or cockroach after your ex?
