Bronx Zoo Cobra Found Alive

Bronx Zoo Cobra Found Alive

A cobra that had been missing for seven days from a reptile exhibit at the Bronx Zoo has been found “alive and well,” Zoo Director James J. Breheny said at a news conference today.

The Egyptian cobra was found inside a non-public area of the zoo’s Reptile House, and was in “really good condition,” Mr. Breheny is quoted as having said, The New York Times reported.

During the time that the cobra had gone missing, she had attracted tabloid media coverage, including a fake Twitter feed that had gone venomously viral and a Facebook page advocating that the cobra host ''Saturday Night Live'' (recalling the Facebook page that helped Betty White to host SNL).
