The Bronx Zoo is asking the public to help pick a name for its Egyptian cobra that disappeared and was found again last month.
After 33,000 votes, it is now down to the following five:
• Agnes, which is Greek for “pure” or “holy.”
• Amaunet, an ancient Egyptian goddess.
• Cleopatra, after the pharaoh who is said to have killed herself with a serpent bite.
• Subira, which is Egyptian for “patient.”
• Mia, which spells out the abbreviation “M.I.A.” that stands for “missing in action.”
