Reptile Takes to New Media

Did you catch the story about the snake that escaped from the Bronx Zoo in New York City. The crafty reptile has been on the loose since last weekend frustrating searching zookeepers.

And this isn't just any snake...I mean, this is an Egyptian Cobra, one of the most dangerous snakes in the world. Zoo officials believe the Cobra is hiding somewhere right in the zoo...but, evidence has surfaced that might indicate they are wrong. Recently, the venomous cobra has set up its own Twitter account and is sending tweets chronicling its new found freedom...and these tweets indicate the slithering escapee is very mobile and sighting seeing in New York City.

Below are some recent messages tweeted by the fugitive that will give you an idea of just what it has been up to. You can follow all the creature's tweets at BronxZoosCobra.

I want to thank those animals from the movie "Madagascar." They were a real inspiration.

Gonna listen to some Jazz tonight. You know I love some great flute work. Do they provide it or is it bring your own basket?

Leaving Wall Street. These guys make my skin crawl.

Holding very still in the snake exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. This is gonna be hilarious!

A lot of people are asking how I can tweet with no access to a computer or fingers. Ever heard of an iPhone? Duh.

Dear NYC, Apples and snakes have gone together since the beginning.

Anyone know of a good vegan restaurant near Union Square?
