The Bronx Zoo announced yesterday that a deadly cobra – nicknamed Cobra-dini, is ‘missing’ from his enclosure. The handlers are sure he is hiding nearby and will reappear when he is hungry (!)
Now, it’s a little known fact there is a zoo in Brooklyn on 17th Street in Park Slope right in someone’s front yard.
Perhaps his dash for freedom is headed that way. The boundaries are a little looser there that’s for sure.
It would be perfect for Cobra-dini. It’s close to the subway where the rat population could do with a good cull plus there are no natural predators here. There certainly have been no honey badger sitings. God knows, whoever created this zoo is as mad as a cut snake so Cobra-dini might just be in perfect company.
Inspired by this still mysterious disappearance, I’ve drawn a picture of Cobra-dini using the continuous lines and working the lines techniques I learned with Carla Sonheim at Etsy Labs.
