Name unveiled for celebrity cobra

59,535 votes later, the Bronx Zoo’s now-famous Egyptian cobra has a name – Mia.

The New York Daily News and the Bronx Zoo partnered together and asked New Yorkers to give a proper name to city’s celebrity reptile resident.

More than 34,000 participated and Mia was decided from the five final choices. Names that weren’t up to scale were Subria, Amaunet, Cleopatra and Agnes.

The Bronx Zoo’s Reptile House will re-open to the public on Saturday, April 9. (Bronx Zoo)
