Oh no snake fans! No time to take a trip into the city now! The Bronx Zoo has lost a cobra and shut down the reptile house. But, alas, a creative tweeter has filled the void with tweets giving her status. Some of the tweets are listed below in an article from The Last Word
A deadly cobra from the Bronx Zoo’s Reptile House has been M.I.A. since Friday, and now s/he’s tweeting about it. @BronxZoosCobra (maybe it’s the fake Rahm Emanuel?) gives hilarious updates on its escapades through New York City.
Sample tweets making the whole Last Word staff smile:
Taking the Sex and the City Tour!!! I’m totally a SSSamantha. #snakeonthetown
@peternbcnews Don’t turn around. I’m right behind you. Just kidding! lol!
Donald Trump is thinking about running for president?! Don’t worry, I’ll handle this. Where is Trump Tower exactly?
Today marks Day Five of the Cobra Search, but zoo director James Breheny said the snake might not be found for weeks. “Right now, it’s the snake’s game. At this point, it’s just like fishing; you put the hook in the water and wait. Our best strategy is patience, allowing her time to come out of hiding,”he said.
The World of Reptiles exhibit remains closed to visitors as zookeepers hope to find the escapee lurking in the building and not wreaking havoc upon the city.
Even Mayor Michael Bloomberg got into the act tweeting he touring the Met with President Obama but didn’t see the @BronxZoosCobra! Love that!Connect with Us on Social Media:
