Actress Betty White will be teaming up with former Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash in order to promote the Los Angeles Zoo's new reptile house attraction.

The unlikely pair will participate in shooting five new ads aimed at drawing people to the zoo to view the new exhibit that is set to open in March.

This new reptile house attraction will feature 60 species of "weird rare and endangered amphibians, invertebrates and reptiles."

White and Slash have been supporters of the Los Angeles Zoo for years. There is even an orangutan at the zoo named Elka. The name comes from White's character on her current sitcom "Hot in Cleveland."

She currently serves on the board of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. Slash was honored last month for his contributions to the zoo's wildlife center by zoo officials.

One of the ads features the two attending the new exhibit looking at some of the new reptiles while discussing the gender of the animals they are looking at.

White's pairing with bad boy guitarist Slash is not the only recent run in she has had with rebellious musicians.

The 90-year old former "Golden Girls" star encountered hip-hop star Young Jeezy last week on Conan Obrien's talk show right before he was scheduled to perform.

Upon meeting White Jeezy tweeted, "With the OG Betty White."

Slash has also made headlines recently with the band that made him famous, Guns N' Roses.

The band is scheduled to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland this year. It will also be the first time the all the original members will be together in years.

"I know that all the original band is going to be there," said Dizzy Reed, the keyboardist for the band to Bilboard.com.
