Every night I go to bed thinking how I can help change the world and inspire people to love our beautiful wildlife and ecosystems! I’d legit take a bullet for any animal at any day and anytime that’s just how much I care for them ! Idk what kind of fire god set in my soul for animals but the love is deep and real ! I was placed on this earth for 1 thing and that’s exactly what I’ll do for the rest of my life ! Let’s all love one another and save the planet together as one ☝️ 🌎 @kodyantle TAG A ANIMAL LOVER ❤️
Most of all, Sugriva likes videos and pictures, showing the animal leaping into the arms of Mike Holston. He is a former football player, who has an account in Instagram – The Real Tarzann – and posts materials of various exotic animals. For the chimpanzee, it took 2 years to use Instagram appropriately.
Moreover, this is not the only amusement for Vali and Sugriva. They also play a set-top box, surf, do yoga and sports and even take a bath.
Kody looks like a real cartoon character; he has long hair and a muscular body. He understands animals, communicates with them, they trust him. He likes jumping on trees with monkeys, swimming in a pool with tigers and doing yoga with elephants.
Kody Antle has been living with animals since birth. Kody’s father is the owner of the reservation and true animal-lover. Elephants, tigers, panthers, and jaguars are among inhabitants of Myrtle Beach Safari.
“I was born in the zoo, animals raised me. From childhood, I played with them. I fell asleep with tigers, ate with monkeys, and rode elephants. I have never felt bored or sad, but safe and happy. I really think that I have some mental connection with these animals. We have been taking care of them for ages. My father worked hard to create a home for animals”.
The reservation is located in South Carolina, USA and protects endangered animals. There are hundreds of them in the reservation.
The elder ones have survived after the cruelty of poachers by luck. But most of the animals are born in Myrtle Beach Safari.
There are more than 60 big cats in Myrtle Beach Safari, every one of them eats 10 kilograms of meat every day. Despite their sharp canines, the animals are kind and playful.
All animals feel themselves good in the natural environment, freely moving over a huge territory. But at the same time, they like to use new technologies.
“The lions love the jacuzzi, the swimming pool, and the so-called beauty studio. And monkeys like travelling by car. All animals are clever; they know how to use any technique, whether it is a TV or a bathroom with foam”.
But not only the chimpanzees from Myrtle Beach Safari like modern technologies. In Virunga National Park, Congo, two gorillas like to pose for a selfie. The jaegers rescued the gorillas from poachers and become adoptive “parents” for the animals. During this time the animals have learned a lot from the humans, even how to look great on photos.
Lovely stories, aren’t they? What animals do you like most of all?
