Tequila Snakebite

Gulfnews: Tequila the chimp dies of snake bite:

"Abu Dhabi: Tequila, the young chimpanzee of Abu Dhabi, died in Al Ain Zoo on August 6.

A wild snake at the zoo is believed to have killed her.

According to a summary of a report on the death obtained by Gulf News, the zoo curator was informed at 10.30am on August 6 that the chimp had slipped into a coma."

The full article was in today's Gulf News as well as a 'lovely' photo of poor Tequila spreadeagled on the ground, looking, well, dead. Couldn't we have had a photo of Tequila taken at a happier moment? Like for instance when she was on the Animal Planet channel?

So there are poisonous snakes roaming around Al Ain Zoo? No cause for alarm there, don't they say snakes are more afraid of us than we are of them?
