Bronx Zoo Looking To Name Famous Cobra

The poisonous Egyptian cobra that captivated the nation after eluding Bronx Zoo employees for nearly a week will get a name today.  

The zoo and New York Daily News asked the public to cast their vote for a name for the elusive reptile.

After getting more than 33-thousand suggestions they were able to come up with a list of five most popular: Agnes, Amaunet, an ancient Egyptian goddess, Cleopatra, Subira, and Mia, an abbreviation for 'missing in action'.  

The 3-ounce, 20-inch reptile slithered out of her enclosure March 26th.  

She turned up five days later, hiding out in the reptile house.
