The Bronx Zoo is missing a cobra. The poisonous snake has not been seen since Friday. It still hasn’t returned after four days so we can assume it’s not just taking a long weekend with the kids at nearby Fordam University. Zookeepers maintain the critter is still lurking in the nooks and crannies of the Reptile House, but the snake seems to have taken a downtown 2 Train or 5 Train at the nearby East Tremont Avenue/West Farms Square subway station.
The venomous varmint is clearly an adolescent. Proof: she has a cell phone, and she’s on Twitter. Sample Tweet: “At the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Temple of Dendur really kicks some asp. @BronxZoosCobra”
