Seal It With a Hiss: Name a Roach after an Ex this Valentine’s Day

You can name a roach after a loved one — or after a not-so-loved one — for a unique Valentine’s Day “gift” at Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary in Lilburn.

Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary in Lilburn is home to native and exotic animals that cannot be released back into the wild. This awesome sanctuary is home to black bears, ring-tailed lemurs, deer, a wallaby, sloths, bison, pigs…and cockroaches!

Looking for a unique gift for a loved one? How about naming a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach after them?!

For $5, you can name a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach after your love for a Valentine’s Day gift they won’t soon forget. Not only do you get to the name the roach, but you’ll also get a digital certificate and a photo of your newly-named buddy — proof of your roach-filled love for them.

Now…not everyone is feeling the love on Valentine’s Day. In fact, you may be feeling the opposite. Don’t worry, Yellow River has something for your not-so-loved ones too.

For $7, you can name one of their Dubia cockroaches after your former loved one, and then you can watch it be fed to one of their bug-loving critters. (Ha!) They’ll even send you the video of your ex-named roach being fed to one of their animals.

You can purchase your roach naming here.

Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary has undergone major improvements since being bought by new owners. After massive changes to the animals’ enclosures, the sanctuary reopened in 2020. The goal of Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary is to provide the animals with enrichment activities, well-maintained habitats, and high quality diets (which may include a roach named after your ex…).

Happy Valentine’s!
