Cobra Found At Bronx Zoo, Resting Comfortably
That deadly, poisonous cobra that's been missing from the Bronx Zoo has been found,
The cobra had evaded zoo workers for six days.
The zoo's director said today that "we had to give her a chance to feel secure and comfortable so she would come out."
And that's exactly what the cobra did.
The zoo conducted extensive sweeping searches throughout its Reptile House several times a day before finding the snake. Reportedly, the zoo has not changed any protocol since the cobra went missing.
The building will reopen and the cobra will be put on exhibit once officials are sure she is healthy.
Note -- the cobra does not have a name but the zoo is now considering having a naming contest to name her.
