Reptile House Is Open, Mia Greets Her Public


Finally, the Bronx Zoo’s Reptile House is open again. This means we can all get some face time with the newly-named Mia, who is the most famous and important cobra ever to have lived. And you’d better believe the Zoo is milking it: the sign on her enclosure now reads “Meet Mia – The Famous Bronx Zoo Cobra,” and there is a little placard explaining her exciting escape to a nearby part of the same building she’s always been in. Are you rushing to the Reptile House yet?
