Rescuing Animals In The Wild

Last year, the 29-year-old shared a video of one of his night voyages when he saw something rustling around in the tall grass. He jumped off the boat and swam over to find a snapping turtle with a fishing hook lodged in his throat.

He was able to carry the poor little guy back to the boat, but since removing a fishing hook was not in his expertise, he decided the best course of action was to take him home to perform surgery on him later.

The video received 2.3 million views and nearly 200,000 comments.

Tony Is Also A Dog Lover

A few days ago, Tony was driving when he spotted a dog wandering near a drainage ditch. Being the animal lover that he is, he pulled over and brought the pup into his car.

The 29-year-old then drove through the nearby neighborhoods to try to find the owner, but he had no luck. So, he brought the little guy home and spent the whole day together. They went swimming, played fetch with some coconuts, and then met Baby Girl (which could have gone better).

Eventually, Tony was able to locate the owner, and the two reunited!

Pretending To Be Jeffrey Dahmer

One of Tony's best-known videos is when he decided to prank his family and pretend that Jeffrey Dahmer had inspired him.

The 29-year-old TikToker watched Netflix's "DAHMER. Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story" with his mom, who he says was extremely freaked out after seeing Evan Peters portray the infamous serial killer. So, naturally, he decided to have some fun and pretended to mimic Dahmer's actions.

Over the course of three days, Tony decided to bring Dahmer into his home, hiding roadkill under her bedroom and sleeping next to a mannequin. He took it a step further by dressing like the infamous killer, from the iconic glasses down to the white shirt tucked into a pair of tight blue jeans.

He also announced the proceeds from the mini-series would be donated to the Missing and Exploited Children Fund.
