Getting up close and personal with a slithery snake, Sarah Michelle Gellar spent Saturday evening (June 16) at the Los Angeles Zoo with Betty White.

The stars attended the 42nd annual Beastly Ball where the blonde beauty received the second Tom Mankiewicz Leadership Award from the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, which raises money for the attraction.

After receiving her award the 35-year-old actress said, “"One of the places that I've come to love before I even had children was the L.A. Zoo. Now getting to see it through my daughter is just the most amazing experience."

When asked about her contributions Miss Gellar added, “"I started because my mother taught me a long time ago that even why you have nothing, there's way to give back and what you get in return for that is tenfold.”

The expecting mother was also spotted arriving at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA with her daughter Charlotte earlier in the day.
