The King Of The Jungle and The Real Tarzan – these are the names that a wildlife biologist, teacher, and a zookeeper Mike Holston from Miami, Florida, calls himself. His Instagram is full of fluffy, scary, adorable and unique animals that he takes care of because of the endless passion for wildlife conservation that leads him through life.

Inspired by Steve Irwin, who he calls his idol and “the best man to stroll this Earth,” The Real Tarzan uses the visibility he gets for the good causes. He loves to educate people about those animals and often visits schools to teach children. Holston’s daily life might seem completely crazy as he can be seen cuddling with tigers, sharing bananas with monkeys, posing with all kinds of reptiles and many other exotic animals. Scroll down to see how the best job in the world looks like for yourself!

This just looks like a dude who buys exotic animals and markets himself as a zoo/educator. I’d prefer to see them in the wild rather than captured and sold as a commodity.
