Homage to The Bronx Zoo Cobra
Bronx Zoo Cobra – May we adorn you? The Egyptian cobra that went missing from its enclosure last Friday was found today. The wily cobra had started a twitter page and had been tweeting about town in NYC, but we are glad to hear the famous reptile is safe and sound. We admire the pluck of this adventurous cobra, and what better way to pay homage than to send a bejeweled hello!
