The deadly cobra that escaped the Bronx Zoo on Saturday is back in custody, a source said Thursday.

The highly venomous 20-inch-long snake apparently escaped from its habitat sometime Friday, although zoo officials said then that it was likely hiding out somewhere inside the Reptile House, which has remained closed since the weekend.

Wildlife Conservation Society officials are expected to make the announcement that they have recovered the Egyptian cobra that had escaped.

Someone even created a Twitter account called @bronxzooscobra and quickly garnered nearly 200,000 followers.
