The Egyptian Cobra that went missing from Bronx Zoo is now been found
After escaping from the Reptile House at the Bronx Zoo last week, an Egyptian Cobra has been found after a six day search. The snake was found yesterday (Thursday) at approximately 9am in a area not open to the public coiled up in a dark corner.
The Reptile House was locked up on Friday 25th March as staff members searched the building. The staff had a hard time finding the snake because it is an extremely complex environment with all sorts of mechanical systems like pumps and motors.
A spokesperson for the zoo has said that the snake now needs to be placed under observation and evaluated before going back as an exhibit in the Reptile House. The Reptile House was closed down when it discovered that the twenty four inch adolescent female escaped from its enclosure.
The Egyptian Cobra became a big hit on Twitter when accounts started popping up from people wanting the snake to be freed. Two names that popped up were @BronxZoosCobra and @freethebronxzooscobra.
