Our friend, veterinarian Dr. Evan Antin, who was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Beast Charmer in 2015, doesn’t just work on cats and dogs, one of his passions is reptiles and he loves messing around with wild snakes. (Don’t try this at home)
Dr. Antin practices on all animals, including various wild and exotic species at Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital outside of Los Angeles, California.
“It doesn’t really matter what animal species…to me, any baby is cute. Even the slithering, venomous ones.” “The Southern Pacific Rattlesnakes just had their babies a few weeks ago so be on the lookout if you live in Southern California.”
Before this handsome beast charmer began his veterinarian career, he was a personal trainer and did a bit of modeling on the side, but his heart seems to be with the countless animals that he saves.
As if being the world’s sexiest beast charmer wasn’t enough, he is also an animal expert and travels around the world volunteering to help endangered species.
“Did you know rattlesnakes give live birth? They’re ovoviviparous which means they produce eggs but the babies “hatch” internally before leaving mom. Most other reptiles lay eggs and the babies break out of a shell like baby birds. Many shark species are ovoviviparous as well.
He has many different species of rescued animals at home and one is a Savannah monitor lizard named Matilda, a dog named Henry, a cat called Willy, and many tropical fish.
We’re glad that his passion for helping animals surpassed all. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to saving our beloved animals, Dr. Antin.
