The Bronx Zoo Snake on Twitter

Posted: March 30, 2011 by clgiblin in Uncategorized

Recently, a snake escaped from the reptile exhibit of the Bronx Zoo. The Egyptian Cobra, is a dark snake with a narrow hood. It can grow up to two yards in length, but currently is only twenty inches and pencil-thin, only weighing about three ounces. The director of the zoo believed that the snake was still in the reptile house, but in hiding because it was scared. “Upon leaving its enclosure, the snake would feel vulnerable and seek out a place to hide and feel snake. When the snake gets hungry or thirsty, it will start to move around the building. Once that happens, it will be our best opportunity to recover it,” said Jim Breheny, the director of the zoo. While the snake has gone missing, a Twitter account was created for the missing snake. The account has over ten thousands followers and “offers a hilarious ‘account’ of the snake’s travels throughout New York City. Some of the funnier Twitter messages include: ‘I want to thank those animals of the movie “Madagascar.” They were a real inspiration.” This created account goes to show how creative a person can be with the use of the Internet and social networking tools.
