Name a Cockroach or Rat After Your Ex
San Antonio Zoo has brought back the 'Cry Me a Cockroach' event for a second year. This a great way to get back at your Ex and raise money for the San Antonio Zoo. Proceeds will help expand the jaguar habitat with a connected overhead catwalk. Plans include the addition of an overhead catwalk that will connect the jaguars’ existing habitat to another nearby habitat.
You will be able to name a cockroach after your ex, and they will serve it up as an enrichment treat to one of our animals for only $5. Maybe your ex was worse than a cockroach. Maybe they were a snake. If so, you can name a pre-frozen rat after them, and we will feed it to a reptile for $25! Live rodents are not used in this feeding. Pre-frozen rodents that will be utilized are part of the regular daily scheduled feedings of their animals. They are delivered frozen from a mouse farm and stored at their Nutrition Center until thawed for feedings.
The San Antonio Zoo has even added to the pettiness this year. You can no symbolically purchase a herbivore option for those roommates who never pick up after themselves or for the people you’ve been stuck within quarantine for $5, and we will feed them to one of our vegetarian animals!
On Valentine’s Day, February 14th, we will be showing our ‘Cry Me A Cockroach!’ feeding frenzy on our social media pages! Birds, reptiles, and mammals from San Antonio Zoo will join in on this feast.
