It's all that slithers for Leonardo DiCaprio
Days before announcing his split
from Blake Lively
, the Oscar nominee visited the Australia Zoo with Great Gatsby
costar and best buddy Tobey Maguire Saturday.
Accompanied by his mom, DiCaprio got acquainted with a sizable snake for part of his tour around the animal haven, which was founded by Crocodile Hunter
Steve Irwin. Later, Irwin's widow Terri and his daughter Bindi gave the stars and their entourage, which included Maguire's wife Jennifer Meyer and their kids Ruby and Otis, a personal introduction to the zoo.
Since his breakup, DiCaprio has continued shooting Down Under, while it seems Lively has already moved on. The Gossip Girl
starlet was spotted with Green Lantern
costar Ryan Reynolds
in Boston on a doggie date
