THE BRONX - The Bronx Zoo gave media personnel a sneak peak of its new exhibit today showcasing the Egyptian cobra who went missing two weeks ago.
The zoo says 34,000 people sent in nominations for names and 60,000 people voted. In the end, the zoo announced the winning name for the cobra would be "MIA," which stands for missing in action.
Zoo employees say "MIA" is less than 1-year-old and although she is currently 24-inches long, they say she can grow up to about 8 feet.
The exhibit is set to open to the public tomorrow.
