Photos of Betty White's Reid Park Zoo Visit

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 at 5:00 PM

What's cuter than Betty White clinging to baby lion cubs? That's what we thought. Good try, though.

The 92-years young actress recently flew out to Tucson after getting a phone call from the Reid Park Zoo director Jason Jacobs. Jacobs became good friends with Betty during his time as the Development and Marketing Director at the Los Angeles Zoo. White couldn't resist coming to Tucson after hearing about the Expedition Tanzania elephant exhibit and the four baby lion cubs. The 36-year-old zoo director says the last time Ms. White visited the Reid Park Zoo was in 1988.

Try not to "squee" too loud while adoring these pictures of Betty White at the Reid Park Zoo:
