Feeling the sting of rejection? Itching to get even with an ex? The San Francisco Zoo is offering the burned and spurned masses the chance to "adopt" a hissing cockroach or giant scorpion in honor of their special ex-someone for Valentine's Day.
The zoo is highlighting two of its less-desirable inhabitants through the adopt-an-animal program that is usually used to raise money for the care of more cuddly or attractive creatures, such as penguins, lions and pandas.
The Valentine's special compares the creepy characteristics of Madagascar hissing cockroaches and the giant hairy scorpions to the ways of heart-breaking mammals with two legs.

We can hardly bear the cuteness of Vietnam's Halong Bay bears – and that's just one reason why celebrities around the world are joining Animals Asia's campaign to save them from suffering on bile farms.
In an effort to rescue Asia's furry friends, singer/actress Olivia Newton-John, actor/writer (and newlywed!) Stephen Fry and actress Ali MacGraw have lent their helping hands to remove these bears from dangerous conditions and place them into Animals Asia's care and rehabilitation at its Tam Dao bear sanctuary.

He looks like a too-perfect special effects creation for a movie, but nope, he's real. Behold the pygmy hippo born to England's Whipsnade Zoo on December 26.

Sew, here's the deal: Project Pouch needs you!
Koalas aren't the only animals affected by the bushfires in Australia. Orphaned or injured possums, kangaroos, and wallabies need to be kept warm in a pouch-like environment. To help, Project Pouch, a new campaign created by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, is asking for handmade "pouch liner" donations to comfort the traumatized animal babies, nine of which are being cared for by the Adelaide Zoo.
