Dave Salmoni is A Sexy Beast!

By: Brodie

This Animal Planet series host is so hot he could ignite the Serengeti.

For his show, Into the Pride, he spends months living with lions in the wild, and while Dave Salmoni is often wacky and bearded he's always had a certain something...

The big cat expert cleaned up and then grimed up for some of the sexiest black and white shots to ever grace the pages of Flaunt magazine.

Things heat up for the cat lover even more after the jump.


Shot by Tony Duran, the provocative pictures display a raw and animalistic sex appeal from Salmoni and evoke easy comparisons to Herb Ritts in Duran’s artful shots.

Salmoni doesn't take his gay fans for granted, either. He told The Advocate, "I’m really conscious of it, and I think it’s awesome. They’ve been a really vocal group over the years. I feel like my gay fans are the most appreciative. I get lots of e-mails from them, and they’re not shy. A young girl may say, “Hey, I really like you, you’re kinda cute,” whereas a gay guy will be like, “Hey, take your shirt off more and you’ll get better ratings.”
