Betty White seems to have taken Sir Elton John’s classic song “Crocodile Rock” seriously. In celebration of the singer’s 65th birthday, she adopted a crocodile for him.

The renowned actress and animal activist celebrated the legendary singer’s birthday by adopting a Malayan gharial crocodile.

She had a little help from the life settlement company, Lifetime Program, which helps senior citizens with retirement financial options.

“Elton has been a wonderful advocate for animals and wildlife issues, so we decided to honor him by adopting a crocodile on his behalf at The Los Angeles Zoo,” White said.

Like White, John also supports animals, especially wildlife issues and organizations like the Morris Animal Foundation and the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. The Los Angeles Zoo’s LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates and Reptiles) program will welcome the reptile to its residence.

The actress also had an animal adopted in honor of her 90th birthday. According to the Huffington Post, the Los Angeles Zoo named their new baby Bornean orangutan after White’s “Hot in Cleveland” character. I guess she was inspired to show someone else the love.

Who wouldn’t want an animal adopted in their honor? Sounds like the perfect gift!
