Bronx Zoo Cobra Turns Up—On Twitter.  On Friday afternoon, zookeepers at the Bronx Zoo’s reptile house noticed a poisonous Egyptian cobra was missing.  By Monday the “snake” (or, rather, a clever person with a bit of time on their hands) joined Twitter to document their adventures in the big city.  Also signing up for the site?  The Bronx Zoo keeper, who is hot on the cobra’s tail trail.  Follow both funny accounts as they play a modern game of cat and mouse in the big city.  It’s sure to be a good laugh, at least until the snake does something dangerous in real life.
