Betty White And A Red-Tailed Boa Celebrate Her 91st Birthday

Betty White and Snakes

Actress Betty White celebrated her 91st birthday with a photo shoot that included a red-tailed boat from the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

The slimy present was part of Betty White’s campaign for the Lifeline Program, a company that features life-settlement specialists and for which White is a spokeswoman.

White is a longtime supporter and even an ambassador for the Zoo which made her a perfect fit for the photo shoot.

In a statement released following the shoot White writes:

“Jacob the boa constrictor is good as gold and cuddles in my arms. and around my neck.”

White says if anyone wants to give her a birthday present they can simply donation to the Morris Animal Foundation, a nonprofit committed to animal health science. Betty White hopes to raise $10,000 for the nonprofit.

In a Huffington Post blog she writes:

“Animals are near and dear to my heart, and I’ve devoted my life to trying to improve their lives. Since a girl like me already has more than I could hope for, I’m asking fellow animal lovers for a special birthday gift this year.”

I have to hand it to Betty White, she’s braver than I am to have a deadly and powerful snake ready to potentially wrap around her body at 91-years-old.

Here’s a photo from the Lifeline Program photo shoot:

    Also, the Golden Girls is BRILLIANT! It's so funny, well written & shows the world that OLD GALS CAN HAVE FUN AND BE SEXY TOO! I HOPE IF I PASS AFTER MY HUBBY (I don't even want to think about that :(. ) THAT I CAN BE PART OF A GROUP OF "GOLDEN GIRLS." Sadly, Betty White is the only Golden Girl still living. I love the show, AND BETTY WHITE MAKES ME LAUGH SO HARD! ~£ori Towsley-Goldman

    Do you even read your articles before you post them? Spellcheck /= proofreading.

    Hope you had a fantastic birthday, Betty! Love you and your work, on and off stage and camera. But who the heck put this article together? Research and proofread if you want to be taken seriously. Boat? Slimy? Geez.

    The word boat is spelled correct, so spell check would not have helped.

    OH, Betty White, how I love you so. I have watched you and followed your career for as long as I can remember. My favorite of all time has to be Golden Girls. All of you ladies were amazing. However the dance marathon was outstanding. However the sky is falling episode brought the animal activist in you shining through. God Bless you!
