It must be nice to have friends like Betty White. Seriously, the lady's 90 years old and is still making me laugh. The latest proof of her impenetrable aura of cool: she got Elton John a crocodile for his birthday a few weeks ago, the Huffington Post reports.

Now now now. Before you animal lovers get upset at the thought of the flamboyant pop crooner (or anyone, for that matter) actually owning  a crocodile, let me explain. An animal lover herself, White decided to sponsor a crocodile at the Los Angeles Zoo on Elton John's behalf. As well-off as these two undoubtedly are, it's nice to see them supporting a cause that's near and dear to many BUSTies' hearts: the protection of endangered animal species.

Plus, the mental image of Betty White and Elton John spending a day at the zoo with this lucky adopted crocodile is just too good. 

In honor of these adorable pals and their new reptilian friend, here's Elton John's classic "Crocodile Rock."
