Justin Bieber's Snake

Exposed in Minnesota

3/8/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Bieberconda?
Justin Bieber now has one fewer snake to hold on a daily basis -- because the legless reptile-turned-fashion accessory he carried around at the VMAs last year has found a new home ... in a Minnesota zoo (below).

A rep for the Rad Zoo in Owatonna, MN tells TMZ, they received the small boa constrictor -- aptly named "Johnson" -- as a gift from a good Samaritan ... who purchased the snake at an auction following the MTV award ceremony.

According to the rep, the benefactor wanted Johnson to have a good home ... and thought Rad would be the perfect place.

We're told the snake has only been at the zoo for a week -- but once it gets settled in, zookeepers plan to give it a special sign indicating its Bieberific claim to fame.

These pics of Bieber with this Beautiful Boa make me sick...now all kinds of little kids will be wanting a snake & how many will die from being neglected or abused?
"Stars" should be much more careful to "pose" with wild animals knowing their young fans will want to emulate them!
90% of the time, they cannot handle the animal & it ends up tortured, neglected & dead...SHAME ON YOU BIEBER!

he bought a snake and now he wants it to have a good home. and people turn that into something negative and trash him. Long story short, JB will be remembered for his music, the people who post stupid negative stuff will be remembered for...nothing, you live a loser and you'll die a loser, no one will care.

I'm a resident of Owatonna.. And I must say I am ashamed to have anything to do with Justin. Even if it's just having his stupid snake.

He's legal now. His snake can be freely exposed at any time.
