The Escaped Bronx Zoo Cobra Has Been Captured

All good, poisonous, things…

The elusive Bronx Zoo cobra was captured today.  Contrary to his [update: a reader points out he is a SHE!] now-famous Twitter feed, it turns out she never left the zoo at all.  (Lucky for her!  NYC subway rats are dangerous.)

In fact she was apparently hiding out in the reptile house all along.

Naturally, the zoo was relieved.  Presumably the @bronxzooscobra was slightly less amusing to them. 

Speaking of which, the awesome Twitter cobra feed has gone suddenly silent.  If the NYC tourist board had its wits about it they would scoop that up lickety-split.
