For those who have everything: The Bronx Zoo's Cocoa-Roach

The Bronx Zoo has 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches, and most of them still need a name.

New York’s Bronx Zoo is hoping “to start a new lover’s tradition: giving the gift of a cockroach.” With a $10 donation to the zoo, you can have one of the sanctuary’s 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches named after your beloved, and for $15 more, the zoo will also send out a Cocoa-Roach with a card. Each of these artisanal sweets is made of 100 percent dark chocolate—no roach guts. So this Valentine’s Day, remember that “diamonds may be forever, but a cockroach can survive a nuclear disaster.”
