Missing cobra gains online followers as search continuesPosted: Updated:
As the search continues for the Egyptian cobra that went missing from the Bronx Zoo's Reptile Center four days ago, the snake's online followers are growing by the thousands.
The 28-foot poisonous snake slipped away from its cage and has now gone viral with its own Twitter account. The cobra's page is being updated regularly with tweets from the Empire State Building and Wall Street.
As the public keeps its attention on the slithering snake and its location, the Wildlife Conservation Society says it will conduct sweeping searches for the cobra on a daily basis until she is captured.
