Attention, reptile enthusiasts: A venomous white cobra that was once loose in Thousand Oaks is now on exhibit at the San Diego Zoo.
The 4-foot-long female, which went on exhibit Tuesday, spent 90 days in quarantine after being captured in September. It then passed a physical exam and a blood test to ensure it was not carrying any viruses, parasites or mites.
The as-yet-unnamed snake has a 4-by-4-foot habitat at the Reptile House with a window so visitors can look. To make room, a python was relocated.
A naming contest is underway. The choices: Adhira (lightning), Sapheda (white), Krima (cream), Cini (sugar), Moti (pearl) and Sundara (beautiful).
