Bronx Zoo Wants You To Name The Egyptian Cobra

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – For six days, the Bronx Zoo’s now-infamous Egyptian cobra captured the attention of snake-lovers (and haters) as she slithered off for a mini vacation.

While she was found on Thursday safe and sound in a remote corner of the Reptile House, she’s still without a name.
