Alice Cooper and friend, 1973

Alice Cooper and his boa constrictor, in an unretouched long exposure shot by Larry Singer. 

“Alice told me that when he first used the snake in his act, she was a little nervous, but still very well behaved. However during a show one night, while Alice was singing, Chiquita coiled herself around his neck and body and, as she stared into his eyes, gave him a very scary hard squeeze. ‘She was just telling me what she could do to me if I ever pissed her off,’ Alice said. ‘And I try really hard not to piss her off.’”

If you squeeze my lizard, I’ll put my snake on you.

I believe that that boa would be Angel, who replaced the recently deceased Julius Squeezer.
