Kody Antle is a wildlife conservationist and animal trainer who has gained popularity for his unique upbringing and close relationship with big cats, particularly tigers. He was born on January 11, 1990, in Salinas, California, and is the son of Bhagavan Antle, who is also known as Doc Antle, a prominent animal trainer and the founder of T.I.G.E.R.S. (The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species) and the Myrtle Beach Safari.

Kody Antle grew up on his father’s wildlife preserve in South Carolina, surrounded by exotic animals from a young age. He was homeschooled and spent much of his time helping to care for the animals and learning about their behavior and needs. His father instilled in him a deep respect and love for wildlife and a desire to protect endangered species.

Kody Antle’s unique upbringing and his close relationship with big cats, particularly tigers, have garnered him the nickname “real-life Tarzan.” He has been featured in numerous documentaries and TV shows, including the Netflix series “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” which chronicled the rivalry between his father and Joe Exotic, a former big-cat zoo owner.

In addition to his work as an animal trainer and conservationist, Kody Antle is also a social media influencer and has a large following on platforms such as Instagram and TikTok, where he shares photos and videos of himself interacting with exotic animals.

However, Kody Antle’s practices have also faced criticism from animal rights activists who argue that keeping wild animals in captivity and using them for entertainment is unethical and harmful to the animals. Kody and his father Bhagavan Antle have denied the allegations of animal abuse and maintain that their work is focused on conservation and education.
