If someone is your ex, you probably don't like him or her very much anymore, no matter who's responsible for the breakup.
So given that you might already refer to that person as a snake, you'd probably love it you could name such a reptile after him/her.
Fortunately - unfortunately, if you don't live in Australia - there's a zoo where you can do just that. As you may have already guessed, that zoo happens to be in Australia.
The wildlife haven has launched a competition in which one can win the luxury of naming a brown snake after a former lover.
The competition is run by Wild Life Sydney and entrants will have to thoroughly explain why their ex deserves it. They will also have to donate to the zoo's conservation fund, a body aiming to help Australian wildlife by funding research and educational programs.
"Is your ex a snake? If so, now is your opportunity to cement their ‘snaky status’ this Valentine's Day by naming a brown snake (one of the world’s most venomous snakes) after them at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo!" the announcement reads.
As for the donation, it's only $1 (totally worth it).

The winner of the competition - who will be announced on Valentine's Day - doesn't only get to name the snake, he/she gets a free pass to visit the reptile for a year. We're not sure it's such a great perk, though.
This idea isn't totally novel. The San Francisco Zoo launched a similar program in 2015 in which persons could name a variety of creatures, such as cockroaches and scorpions, after estranged lovers. The Bronx Zoo has also held a Name-A-Roach program.
This snake, though, really takes the cake.
