Missing Bronx Zoo cobra found in Reptile House

New York City residents can breathe a deep sigh of relief knowing the Bronx Zoo's missing cobra has been found.

The Egyptian Cobra, which had been missing for seven days, caused a media frenzy; the cobra immediately shot to superstardom on Twitter, garnering more than 200,000 followers. But the mystery of the missing cobra came to an end Thursday when Bronx Zoo workers found the elusive reptile in the zoo's Reptile House.

Jim Breheny is the Director of the Bronx Zoo and Senior VP of Living Institutions, Wildlife Conservation Society. Breheny talks to American Morning about the zoo's quest to find the missing cobra.

    I think that "Gypsy" would be a great name for the little
    Egyptian snake.
    She was living life on the lam, with no hang ups!!!
