Be REALLY Romantic: Name a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach After Your Valentine

Valentines Day is upon us and there is no better way to say “forever” than with the gift of a cockroach. The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo is offering you a way to make sure your loved one knows your feelings are forever--with a roach in their name and a chocolate "cocoa-roach."

Last year thousands of hopeless romantics from around the world named real live Madagascar hissing cockroaches at New York's Bronx Zoo after their favorite loved one, “ex,” or mother-in-law. The zoo is again offering the opportunity to name a new crop of cockroaches for Valentine’s Day 2012. Each gift comes with a colorful certificate emailed to your loved one announcing that a cockroach has been named in his or her honor.

When Whitley learned about climate change from the Master of the Key, he decided to write a book about it. Now you can get a copy of the books that started it all--"The Coming Global Superstorm" and "The Key"--from our Whitley Strieber Collection, and both of them come with a special bookplate signed by Whitley!

And read about why Anne Strieber compared herself and Whitley to roaches at the premiere of the "Superstorm" movie, The Day After Tomorrow.



Finally, a gift for that entomologist who has everything :o)
