Who knew making snake soup would be so dangerous??
Everybody. The answer is everybody knows how dangerous making snake soup is. Even if you don’t know what snake soup is, c’mon. It’s called snake soup.
Unfortunately, a chef in Southern China took the risk and paid the price while cooking a cobra in his restaurant last week.

Cute but deadly. A rare combination.
But these baby cobras pull it off. Even though they have enough venom to kill you only 30 minutes after hatching.
A conservatory in India was able to breed King Cobras, which is apparently very hard to to do.
Check out the above video to see the baby snakes playing around.

Cats can be so weird.
It really does look like a cobra ready to strike.

SRSLY NYC Zoos? Get it together!!
A peacock flew the coop today from the Central Park Zoo and remains on the loose on the Upper East Side.
The bird, a male, escaped around 9 a.m., a zoo worker told The Post.
The peacock drew about 100 onlookers this afternoon as it remained perched on a fifth-floor window at a building near East 65th Street and Fifth Avenue for about five hours.
Zoo workers and Parks Department officials were at the building in the hope the bird would fly to a lower floor so that it could be rescued.
The Bronx Zoo got tons of (possibly unwanted) press when a cobra and a peacock managed to escape this spring — and make some impressively witty twitter accounts.
Someone's copying the @BronxZooPeacock!
The Central Park Zoo Peacock has jumped right on that bad wagon as well. You can follow him under @BirdOnTheTown.

Sure, he looks to be all smiles, but British actor Ray Stevenson is set to play the main villain in the upcoming G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes.
Stevenson will play the lead COBRA operative known as Firefly and will also be a dangerous ninja and explosives expert.
You may remember him from the HBO show Rome or as Volstagg in Thor earlier this year. And if you still don't know who he is, you can catch him in the upcoming reboot of The Three Musketeers.
We still have a whole year before we can catch the G.I. Joe sequel as it's set to be released in August 2012.

Be as dramatic as you want red ruffled lemurs!
That wont change Mayor Bloomberg's budget plans.
The mayor wants to chop $4.7 million (50% of what they got last year) from the Bronx Zoo and the New York Aquarium, both run by the Wildlife Conservation Society.
The zoo is obviously in bad shape already. The Zoo's already had two very witty animal escapees (@BornxZooCobra, @BronxZooPeacock) in 2011, if the budget is cut any further all the charming animals will be loose in Manhattan by 2013.
In early 2009, when its budget was slashed by a half-million dollars the society closed three zoo exhibits and cut the society's staff by 186 positions, or 15%.
"We had to make some difficult decisions," John Calvelli, a society spokesman, said in an interview. "We don't have the luxury of firing our walrus."
