What do you do when a mild-mannered snake becomes a celebrity? You name it!
The Bronx Zoo is holding a contest to name the Egyptian cobra that escaped from its enclosure on March 25. The liberated serpent captured the public's imagination, started its own Twitter account and was found safe and sound six days later in a remote corner of the Reptile House.
Turns out the cobra is female, and needs a name worthy of her notoriety. Submissions will be accepted through Monday and the winning name will be announced on Thursday.
We decided to take a stab at naming the cobra and were inspired by TV shows and characters. Vote for your favorite and feel free to suggest your own in the comments below.
