An event to "present a cockroach instead of chocolate" on Valentine will be held at the zoo
On Valentine's Day, which is held on February 14, every year, many lovers send chocolates and gifts to their opponents and spend a sweet time together. However, some people who are far from the story or people who have just been humbled by their lovers may want to say "Relieve me" without thinking of the atmosphere. For such a person, a zoo in the United States holds a Valentine event entitled "Quit Bugging Me". A feeding cockroach named after the applicant's ex-boyfriend and ex-kano was used to feed insect-eating animals.
