El Paso Zoo to bring back Valentines Tradition of naming cockroaches after exes
The El Paso Zoo is hinting at continuing their annual Valentine’s tradition of naming cockroaches after exes and feeding them to the meerkats.
The program, “Quit Bugging Me” launched in 2019 as a way to get the community involved in the daily activities of the animals. “This is a fun way to get the community involved in our daily enrichment activities,” said El Paso Zoo Event Coordinator Sarah Borrego said to KFox14 last year. “The meerkats love to get cockroaches as a snack and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by feeding them a cockroach named after your ex!”
This year’s info will be released on http://www.elpasozoo.org/ in the next few days.
