Co­bra- dini on loose at Bronx Zoo

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A VEN­OMOUS Egyp­tian co­bra re­mained on the loose at the Bronx Zoo on Sun­day – and jit­tery vis­i­tors griped that they hadn’t been told about it be­fore en­ter­ing.

The 50cm snake, dubbed Co­bra-dini by zoo-go­ers, es­caped from its en­clo­sure at the Rep­tile House on Fri­day and has not been seen since.

But ‘‘ we are con­fi­dent that the snake is se­cure within the Rep­tile House,’’ s ai d z oo di­rec­tor Ji m Breheny in a state­ment.

‘‘ When the snake gets hun­gry or thirsty, it will move around which will be our chance to re­cover it.’’
