The cobra is only 20 inches long, but it's dangerous. Yikes!
Supposedly it's somewhere in the reptile house, which is, for now, closed to the public -- until the snake is found. But then again, the cobra could have already just said, "I'm outta here," and slithered its way to greener pastures. Maybe it had enough of the Bronx?
Given that the cobra is Egyptian, some think it may have hopped a plane to Egypt to get involved in the populist struggle there. Others, however, say that the cobra is an avid Mets fan and decided to go to Florida to watch some spring training games.
And some have speculated that the cobra has joined the entourage of entertainer Lady Gaga, who is always looking for something new to add to her act. "A cobra would be a fantastic follow-up to the meat dress and the egg limousine," an enthusiastic fan gushed.
The Lady Gaga rumors are fueled by the fact that the entertainer has supposedly been working on new versions of old favorites such as "You've Got Me under your Skin" and "That Old Black Magic."
Fasten your seatbelt. Lady Gaga the snake charmer may be on her way!
