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.

    I think a good name would be Grace or Gracie as in the song “Amazing Grace”–(Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a snake like me. I once was lost but now am found. I’m lucky to be me).
