Betty White found an unlikely partner to promote a new exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo: Slash.

White and the former Guns N' Roses lead guitarist, whose real name is Saul Hudson, appear in a commercial promoting the Living Amphibian, Invertebrates and Reptiles (LAIR) exhibit.

In the commercial, which can be seen below, White and Slash can be seen staring at a pair of frogs.

"You can tell which one is male or female by the dark pads on their fingers," White tells Slash.

"Really? That's cool," Slash replies.

The exhibit is set to open on March 8.

White, a noted animal lover, has had a long relationship with the Los Angeles Zoo and was honored at the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association's 40th Annual Beastly Ball in June 2010 for her dedication to the organization for 40 years. She is also a co-chair of the organization.

"Betty White is synonymous with the Los Angeles Zoo," said GLAZA President Connie Morgan in a statement at the time. "Her heart and her advocacy for the animals that share our earth help drive us to excellence."

Slash appeared at the event and even posed for photos with White while holding a snake. A video of their encounter can also be seen below.

In early February, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association partnered with TV Land to name the zoo's newest baby orangutan after White's "Hot In Cleveland" character Elka.

The former "Golden Girls" star recently celebrated her 90th birthday, which included a star-studded tribute with the television special Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl."

White, who is the only surviving cast member of "Golden Girls," has made a comeback recently, appearing in films like "The Proposal" and "You Again."

The actress has also become one of the most popular senior television stars, especially following a "Saturday Night Live" hosting stint in 2010, which earned the "Golden Girls" star her fifth Emmy Award. She also has a starring role on the TV Land series "Hot in Cleveland."
