Treat Your Sweetheart to a…Cockroach?

Want to show your Valentine that your love will last forever?

Say it with a cockroach.

Before you go all “Eeuuuwwww,”… think about it.

These tough little beasts have been living, loving and roaming the earth for 350 million years. It’s even been said they’d survive a nuclear blast. Who knows? They might even outlive Keith Richards!

Here’s the good news. You don’t have to capture and gift wrap a cockroach yourself. For just $5, you can actually name one at the Cockrell Butterfly Center. You’ll receive a digital commemorative certificate for your Valentine. How’s that for a lasting declaration of love?

You have to admit, it’s the most unforgettable gift ever—and it’s a great way to support conservation and education at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

This Valentine’s Day, give the ultimate symbol of Endless Love…a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach.
