    Just when you need an heir of Slytherin, there are none to be had. Typical Slytherin.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    I guess this puts the Bronx up there with the Everglades for snake phobia. I understand south Florida has a rash of boas or pythons-like hundreds of thousands. Makes an alligator look like a pet.

    I have visions of the cobra finding refuge up under the hood of a car near the engine, very much like cats like to do. Sauteed snake anyone? And in the great tradition of flight of ideas, would Tony Bourdain eat it? (Anyone see that episode of A Cook's Tour where he had the 5 course cobra meal?)

    My best friend's husband actually works at the Bronx Zoo. He's an accountant and his building is nowhere near the reptile house. However, he is terrified of snakes. He has been wearing rubber boots to work ever since the cobra escaped.

    125,000+ are now following "the cobra's" escapades. I'm sure that at some point, the person who thought to do this will reveal themselves. If they are unemployed or are looking for a new line of work, this should help them immensely!

    that they present the locked door as a way to calm people. I know if I were a snake escaping the first place I'd go is through the front door.

    No. There was a short TV series on this last year. The survey, or whatever you want to call it, that was the feature of this show states that the population of these snakes, and the area that they have spread over, is overestimated by a huge amount. There may be a couple thousand pythons roaming the glades. Or not. The number that escaped from the warehouse that was destroyed during Hurricane Andrew are in the hundreds. They, and their progeny, are causing most of the problems. Many, especially the largest ones, died from the cold in the frigid winter we had last year.

    This is not to say they are not there. They are. Mostly in the southernmost part of the state. As are some "pet" snakes that idiots have released because they can't take care of them. But the threat is much less than thought at first.
