"My slithering necklace," the singer Tweeted with a WhoSay photo of her pet python Boots draped around her neck.
The country starlet shaved her head Sept. 4 in support of her best friend, Summer Holt Miller, 36, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in June and started chemotherapy treatments this month.
Pickler seems to be digging the ease of her new do. "Perk of having a buzz cut is that I get to sleep in an extra hour," she Tweeted. "No need to shampoo, condition, blow dry, flat-iron. #ExtraZzzzz ;)"
