SLASH With BETTY WHITE: More Los Angeles Zoo Commercials Posted Online

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Slash recently teamed up with, of all people, veteran actress Betty White to film several short commercials for the Los Angeles Zoo's new attraction, called The Lair. The Lair is scheduled to open on March 8 and will feature what the Zoo described in a press release as "60 species of weird, rare and endangered amphibians, invertebrates and reptiles." Slash himself became well-known during his days with GUNS N' ROSES as the owner of numerous snakes, although he told The Pulse Of Radio he had to dial it down when he became a father. "I used to have a plethora of snakes, but we got rid of everything right before my first son was born because you have 80, you know, life-threatening snakes around and a baby, you know, who's going to grow up to be a toddler that's gonna get into everything," he said. "You know, I got sort of cold feet about the whole thing."

White and Slash have been longtime supporters of the Los Angeles Zoo, with White working on raising funds and awareness for it. She also serves on the board of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association.

Slash was honored last year by the Zoo for his contributions to the wildlife center and is also a trustee on the board.

The legendary guitarist and the equally legendary "Hot In Cleveland" star have filmed several Zoo commercials, of which this is the first.
