Name a Poisonous Snake After Your Ex this Valentine’s Day

If you’re loved-up and have a bunch of roses on your bench right now, this is not for you. But if you’re feeling stabby with pent up ex partner rage? Girl, read on. This is our V-Day gift to you. 

Forget naming a cockroach after your ex. WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo has a huge, horrible, nasty snake that needs a name.

Have you survived a toxic relationship in your past? Then hands up if you think they should christen it after your ex!

You’re already feeling better about Valentine’s now, aren’t you? We can’t wait to see which low-down dirty ex gets naming rights!

Winner takes it fangs and all

You may not have won in love, but one lucky woman is about to get the last laugh anyway! The winner will not only christen the snake, but have zoo visiting rights to come and see the slithery reptile every single day of the year if she wants. And let’s be frank, that’s probably not the worst date you’ve ever been on.

Mark Connolly, General Manager at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo says, “We hope that by providing someone unlucky in love the opportunity to name WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s very own brown snake after their ex, we can give them something else to celebrate on Valentine’s Day this year.”

Cheaper than counselling, less regret than drinking

We can’t wait to see which name the brown snake gets. Maybe “I’m Working Late Wayne” or “Of Course I’m Not Cheating Charlie”. Naming a snake is far cheaper than therapy and feels way better tomorrow than drowning your sorrows.

Of course, even better you’re contributing to the ongoing conservation of Australian native wildlife by funding research, educational programs and events.

Want something that;s a little more fun for Valentine’s Day than thinking about your poisonous ex? Take a look at what’s hot when it comes to mums and sex toys! And have a great night!
