The start of 2020 let's face it, hasn't been great... and if you have been dumped recently it is even worse. But now it is time to cast those negative thoughts and feelings aside and to put a smile back on your face!


 For those that don’t quite require revenge, there’s another way to make you feel better about getting back at your ex on Valentine’s Day.

The HCC is offering the chance to name a cockroach in honor of your friend's worthless ex-“someone” on this special holiday of love for just £1.50.

We are highlighting these creatures through our ‘name a cockroach programme’ (we think adopt is a little too strong, after all - you probably don't want to adopt your friend's ex) to raise money for our projects at the zoo.

After your donation you will receive a downloadable certificate and we will include your ex's name on our roach board which will be revealed on Valentine's Day!


Please read 'The small stuff' below before purchasing.



If you would like your ex's first name included on our roach board, remember to click 'add note' at the checkout stage and enter the roach's name so that we know!

UK CUSTOMERS ONLY This year, as well as being able to name a cockroach after your ex for £1.50 you can now treat yourself or a loved one to a gift box with luxury, handmade and vegan friendly soap, a shampoo bar and a bath truffle from The Kentish Soap Company! Time to wash that ex not just out of your hair, but entire body too!


Included in the gift box is also a printed certificate and a 'how you can compare a cockroach to your ex' mini quiz!

The gift box and its content is plastic free and we hope that this will also encourage the recipient to ditch plastic bottles in favour for these beautiful products!

The small stuff...

  • Please note that the cockroaches name will not appear on the certificate. We don't want to fuel a fire, so this is a keepsake for you or your friend, although should you wish - the certificate does come complete with a message box!

  • Your cockroaches name will however, appear on our roach board at the cockroach enclosure at the HCC.

  • Please note that we only need the first name of your cockroach!

  • We will stop taking names for the 'roach board' at 12pm GMT on Wednesday 12th February. Names submitted after this till 15th Feb will be entered into the 'roach book'.

Terms & Conditions

  • In the event we have more submissions that can fit on our 'roach board', a 'roach book' will be constructed and be on display along side the roach board.

  • Unfortunately, once purchased we are unable to offer refunds. This is because you will receive an automatic product (gift certificate). Please read our full terms and conditions before purchase.
