This is honestly just so important.
He’s also so hot I want to fucking die.
Antin was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Beast Charmer” in December 2014.
This is him snuggling a serval.
Antin told BuzzFeed that he believes the bond between humans and animals “is one of the most special things on the planet.”
And here he is looking all hot and serious with a really big, exotic iguana.
But he cares for the non-exotic guys, too.
He’s also a former model and personal trainer. Because duh.
That porcupine has no idea who he’s dealing with.
Oh yeah, and he’s a cat person.
Kill me now.
But crocodiles are his all-time faves.
“They’ve always fascinated me, and a big part of that is the fact that they’re basically living dinosaurs,” Antin told BuzzFeed.
When he’s not in the office, he travels the world volunteering with animals.
“Since I’ve become a veterinarian, it’s been one of the most gratifying things to help out wild animals native to the exotic corners of the world,” he said.
“My appreciation for animals has only grown in the course of my studies and my career,” he said.
Oh to be one of those puppies.
“I think working with animals is something every human can benefit tremendously from.”
