THE BRONX -

The Bronx Zoo is asking its visitors to name a giant cockroach after their loved ones for Valentine's Day.

The zoo has given visitors a chance to name the creepy crawler after their significant other each Valentine’s Day over the past few years.

For just $15, the zoo says visitors can name a roach and even receive an emailed certificate with the name confirmation.

Visitors can also purchase additional gifts to go along with the certificate like a roach pin, roach-shaped chocolates and socks with pictures of roaches on them.
