It was a fun few days, but every meme has to come to an end eventually.
Sources close to FOX5 New York say the Bronx Zoo cobra, missing since Friday, has been found.

The 20-inch Egyptian cobra's escapades have provided plenty of fun for the Internet all week, inspiring a humorous Twitter feed with 203,000 followers, dry Onion articles and plenty of fun in-character interviews.
The Twitter feed has not as yet been updated to reflect the news; its last post, from 2 p.m. today, quipped, "If you see a bag of peanuts inexplicably moving along the ground at Yankee Stadium today. Just ignore it. It's probably nothing."
We're as sad as anyone to see this week-long Internet festival come to an end, but at least we'll taker solace in this: With Metro's guide to staying safe from the snake, the next time a slithery fugitive terrorizes the city, we'll be ready.
