Missing Bronx Zoo cobra found

Bronx Zoo officials announced today that its missing cobra has been found and is in "good condition."

Officials say the Egyptian cobra was found in the Reptile House, which was closed Friday after employees couldn't locate the snake. They say that the snake was lured out of its hiding place with wood shavings that had the scent of mice.

The cobra caused quite a stir in The Bronx and someone even created a Twitter account, pretending to be the cobra and giving updates to thousands of followers.

Zoo officials say they will have more information in the next few days.
