She’s never been one for convention, and Betty White received quite the unexpected gift for her 91st birthday recently.

The “Golden Girls” gal was given a red-tailed boa constrictor snake by the Lifeline Program, though the serpent will reside at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

Betty declared, "Jacob the boa constrictor is good as gold and cuddles in my arms, and around my neck."

Ms. White also requested that fans who wish to send her birthday presents instead donate money to the Morris Animal Foundation. "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."
