Egyptian cobra at the Bronx Zoo
An unnamed cobra slithered out from the Bronx Zoo in 2011, which made her a true Internet and media celebrity. Her anonymous Twitter account reached almost 200,000 followers and people tuned in on a regular basis to see whether she had been found. After five days of intensive search, the cobra turned up in the reptile house, and it turned out that she was actually inside the nonpublic area of the reptile house all along.
