Slash Rocker Slash has paid a visit to the Los Angeles Zoo to check in on the boa constrictor he donated years ago.

The former Guns N' Roses star handed over his beloved snake after becoming a family man - because he feared the boa might attack his kids.

In a tweet to fans on Friday, the guitarist wrote, "Just got back from the LA Zoo. Took pix with a few reptiles. Including my pet Boa Constrictor I donated to the zoo yrs ago. He's a Big sweetheart!"

Slash has posted photos of himself with the snake online.
