This Hot Veterinarian Posing With Animals Is Turning The Entire Internet Into A Giant Thirst Trap

In 2015 hot bodyguards took over the internetΒ and made it their own. But now that we’re almost in the second month of 2016, we need something new to satiate our deep thirst for Google searches that look like this: “hot+occupation.” Enter Dr. Evan Antin, a veterinarian (and probably next season’sΒ The Bachelor), whose pictures are turning your Facebook into a pile of mushy good.

Buzzfeed reports that Antin, who was namedΒ People’s “Sexiest Beast Charmer” back in 2014, is so hot he is literally making people want to die. And even those people who can’t objectively appreciate Antin’s good looks (he’s a good-looking dude, all right?) can admire the fact that he doesn’t just take hot selfies of himself, but uses his Facebook and Instagram accounts to post pictures of him helping and partying with exotic animals all over the globe. (And yes, according to Buzzfeed, the good doctor is totally a former model/personal trainer.)

Check out this photo of him with some baby crocodiles:

And a giant tortoise, whichΒ could legitimately take off an arm if it retracts its head during examination:

We’ve gotΒ no idea what’s going on here, but whatever that animal is, it’s adorable and also just hella done with everyone:

So’s this guy:

Aren’t owls supposed to be angry despite the fact that they look like delicious s’mores sometimes?

Dr. Antin isn’t just here to show off, though. He also really wants you to know about the plight of baby elephants, which go through some horrible things in the tourism trade:

This was originally a facebook post but it seemed to make a big impact, probably my biggest post to date! If you have any interest in elephants then please continue reading…I usually keep my posts positive on purpose, but this is something that is too important to me, so apologies for this sad post….but it must be shared. Did you know that most baby Asian β€ͺ#β€Želephants‬ in the tourism trade, onesie that look just like this guy here, have gone through a process called "phajaan"? Phajaan is a term that means to crush the elephants spirit, or to separate the spirit from the body. As babies, they take them away from their mothers and put them in a tiny cage, big enough only for them to stand but not sit or move around at all. Then they're literally beaten, for days on end, in the most cruel ways possible. The elephant trunk is so sensitive, and it's how they eat and explore the world. But during phajaan, they'll often be encouraged to stick out their trunks to smell or investigate something, but then their trunks are beaten with bats and spears and whips. The elephants are deprived of food, poked with sticks and blades, kicked, and screamed at. They play terrible mind games with them. It's a truly awful, horrible thing. The idea, in the end, is to crush this animal's spirit so much that they are just an empty shell who will listen to every command…and then they are sold to tour operators for elephant rides and treks. Let's see how much we can get this post shared and spread the word with your friends and family…If you know someone going to β€ͺ#β€ŽSoutheastAsia‬ soon, share this with them, too. β€ͺ#β€ŽWorldElephantDay‬ #wildvet #vet

But he’s happy to pose with puppies and opossums too:

If baby animals (and maybe objectively hot dudes?) are your thing, you should definitely like Antin on Facebook and Instagram. Especially if you want to see dogs in costumes.
