A Modern-Day Tarzan

Imagine riding to work on an elephant. Kody Antle works with tigers, apes and other jungle animals at the preserve founded by his dad, Bhagavan (Doc) Antle.the director of T.I.G.E.R.S., The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species and the R.S.F. Kody, raised around exotic animals and the star of the T.I.G.E.R.S. tour considers himself "some kind of a Tarzan". He thinks his job is "the most amazing thing in the world":

There are two ways to experience the greatest hands-on, interactive wildlife encounter in the world. You can visit T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station, located at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach for free! Or you meet Kody and take the T.I.G.E.R.S. Wild Encounter Tour, located south of Myrtle Beach at the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preserve. T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station is a free wildlife exhibit and living tiger museum with all proceeds benefiting the Rare Species Fund and international grass roots wildlife preservation projects.
