Jan. 25 (UPI) -- A Texas zoo is offering jilted lovers the chance to get some Valentine's Day revenge by naming a cockroach or a rat after their exes before it is fed to a larger animal.

The San Antonio Zoo said scorned lovers can pay $5 to have a cockroach named after their ex before it is served to a larger zoo animal as a meal.

The zoo said someone looking to make a stronger statement can pay $25 to name a pre-frozen rat for their former lover before it is fed to a snake.

"You can also symbolically purchase a herbivore option and we will feed it to one of our mammals," the zoo said.
