MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — If you’re looking for an unusual gift this Valentine’s Day, the Minnesota Zoo has a suggestion – a very unusual suggestion.

Here’s their pitch: “Roaches are red, violets are blue, I named a hissing cockroach after you at the zoo!”

For just $10, you can name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after someone you love.

Donors will receive an electronic certificate that can be emailed to your special someone, along with that beautiful poem.

If that’s a little too unique: the zoo is also offering red panda and penguin stuffed animals.
