Zoos where you can name cockroaches and snakes after your ex
A number of zoos around the world have carried out a program that allows visitors to name cockroaches, venomous snakes or fishes after their exes and feed on bears, as a way to relieve stress.
Wildlife Images, an animals’ rehabilitation and education center in Oregon, USA, offers visitors and supporters the opportunity to name a fish after their exes. They will receive a photo of the fish being eaten by the two brown bears in the center.

According to the post on the center's social network, the price for each fish is 20 dollars, and the donation will be spent to take good care of the two bears Kodi and Yak. In return, they will eat and swallow the salmon named after your ex alive!
Wildlife Images writes on their page: "Let our 1000 pound brown bears tear into your ex… Did you fall hook, line, and sinker for someone who broke your heart? Kodi & Yak would love to help you get your revenge! In exchange for a $20.00 donation your ex’s name will be on a salmon and served up for dinner. We will provide you with a special certificate and photos of Kodi and Yak destroying your salmon!”
The center will give a special certificate and a photo of the two bears enjoying the salmon you name. Thanks to this exciting program, the bears Kodi and Yak will have a well-served year.
Visitors also have many other options, such as giving their exes’ name to cockroaches... Photo: Mashable.

Previously, the Hemsley Conservation Center (USA) also announced a program in which you can name a cockroach after your ex for only $2. You will receive a certificate, but the name of the cockroach will not appear on this. Instead, your ex’s name will be publicly written on the bulletin board of the cockroach raising area.
Wild Life Sydney Zoo (Australia) organized a contest for people to name a brown snake (a native venomous snake) by their former lovers' names. Accordingly, the contestants will explain why their exes deserve to be named for the snake and support a sum of money for Australia's wildlife research and education programs. The winner, of course, will have the right to name the snake after that heart-breaker.
