An Australian zoo is giving scorn lovers the chance to name a snake after their ex as a Valentine’s Day gift.

The brown snake, one of the world’s most venomous, will be named after the former flame of one lucky contestant who not only explains why their ex deserves it but also makes a donation to the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund.

The winner will also receive an annual pass to the zoo so they can keep an eye on their newly named snake, Mashable reports.

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo general manager Mark Connolly wants to make the day of one individual who’s been unlucky in love. “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,” he said. “We’re also throwing in an annual pass to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, so that you can also visit the snake in Darling Harbour as many times as you want during the next year!”

Make your donation by 11:59 AEDT on February 13th for a chance to name a snake after your ex. The winner will be selected on Valentine’s Day.
