The Charles Paddock Zoo is offering a unique way to show your love this Valentine's Day. They are putting cockroaches up for adoption.

Through Monday, Feb. 15 people can adopt a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach to name after that special someone in their life.

For $5, the zoo will give an official Certification of Adoption that includes the Valentine's name. Then on Valentine's Day the zoo will take to social media to stream a video of the resident meerkats enjoying some of the cockroaches.
