The San Antonio Zoo is getting in on the trend of Valentine's Day revenge, offering to name a rat after your ex and feed it to a snake. The feast goes down Feb. 14, with a $25 charge per submission. Or you can go the $5 route and name a tasty cockroach after your ex, then watch it be devoured by a bird or other animal, per WNEM. The El Paso Zoo is also offering this service for a second year for free, though donations are encouraged, per USA Today. And you don't need to be in Texas to enjoy either show. Both zoos plan to live-stream the V-Day events on Facebook. (Here's how to get a free Whopper at Burger King on Feb. 14.)
