Betty White received a very special – albeit very slimy – gift for her 91st birthday.
To mark her Thursday milestone, the Lifeline Program – a company dedicated to life-settlement specialists for which she is a spokesperson – adopted a red-tailed boa from the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens in her name.
For White, a longtime supporter and ambassador to the zoo, the snake was a familiar face.

Christmas is going to be very cozy for Betty White and her dog Pontiac – especially since the 7-year-old pooch has been relinquished of his Elizabethan collar, a.k.a. the "cone of shame."
"He had little growths on his leg and he had to have it removed, so he had to wear one of those plastic collars so he wouldn't take his stitches out," White told PEOPLE at Monday's one-year anniversary party for L.A. Love and Leashes, a nonprofit that finds homes for dogs and cats in Los Angeles shelters. "Well, he got it off today and he's a happy Ponty tonight!"

At 90 years old, Betty White says she feels "so good and energetic" – but she doesn't owe her health to good habits.
"I should follow better eating health rules," the Hot in Cleveland star admits to PEOPLE. "But hot dogs and Red Vines and potato chips and French fries are my favorite foods."
But White doesn't owe all of her well-being to plain luck.
"I have a two-story house and a very bad memory," she says, jokingly. "I'm up and down those stairs all the time."

Betty White has fond memories of the late Richard Dawson, her smooch-happy co-panelist on the long-running competition program Match Game, who died on Saturday night due to complications related to esophageal cancer.
"We used to have such fun," White, 90, gushed to PEOPLE on Monday, right after she unveiled her wax figure at Madame Tussaud's Hollywood.
"Never give celebrities a Crayola and a pad because you get yourself in lots of trouble," added White, referring to Match Game, on which contestants tried to match the celebrities panelists' answers to fill-in-the-blank questions.
Referring to her old pal as "Dickie," White recalled how their antics would "crack us up."
