Officials still searching for missing Bronx Zoo cobra

Officials are still searching for the poisonous snake that escaped from the Bronx Zoo last week. The 20-inch Egyptian cobra has been missing since Friday. Zoo officials say they do not know where it is, but they insist it is hiding somewhere inside the reptile house.

The snake has actually taken up quite the following on Twitter, where someone set up an account for the lost reptile. The fake account details some of the cobra's supposed adventures in New York City, and she reportedly has more than 60,000 followers.
