Bindi Irwin posed with a python wrapped around her body at Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles on Friday. The entire cast of “Dancing With The Stars” Season 21 partied all night at the Hollywood neighbourhood ahead of the premiere of the new season on Sept. 14.

The 17-year-old, who is the daughter of late Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin, is one of the celebrity contestants on the dance reality show this fall. The Australian beauty, who is herself a Wildlife Warrior, said in a short video clip, “This is an albino burmese python. Her name is Sally and she loves dancing even though she doesn’t have any ears and can’t hear.”

Irwin called her python “very cute” and “cool,” E Online reported.

When the teen joined the cast of the show, she revealed that there would be a lot of surprises in store for her fans to look forward to during the ballroom.

“@bindisueirwin just chillin with a snake wrapped around her neck in the middle of the street on Hollywood blvd ... #teamCrikey,” Irwin’s pro partner Derek Hough captioned a video of her smiling with a snake while clad in a sparkly pink costume.

Earlier, Irwin joked that her wardrobe is set to undergo an overhaul, as she will be seen dancing in skimpier clothes than her normal khakis. She also hoped to dance to some of the tunes of Australian rock band AC/DC, which her dad used to love.

She said that she wanted to make her dad proud by following in his footsteps and continuing their work at the Australia Zoo, which was founded by her grandparents, Bob and Lyn Irwin, in 1970. The zoo features animals like koalas, tortoises and lemurs.

“Dancing With the Stars” Season 21 premieres on Monday, Sept. 14 at 8:00 pm on ABC in the US.
