Joe Exotic has released his own brand of leopard-print underwear with his face printed across the front.

The former zookeeper and Tiger King star is selling a range of different styles of underwear, including boxers and briefs, alongside other styles for women.

The garments have been produced by streetwear designer Odaingerous, which is also selling hooded sweatshirts and face masks emblazoned with Tiger King imagery.

The underwear forms part of Exotic's "Revenge" collection.

Titled “The Financially Recover Cheetah Boxer Brief,” the “super soft peachskin” boxers are made from cotton in order to keep “your unmentionables fashionably stylish and secure,” Odaingerous told TMZ.

The soft launch of Exotic's underwear collection has already proven a hit, selling out in hours.

Exotic is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence after being found guilty of attempting to orchestrate the murder of his former rival and Tiger King co-star, Carole Baskin, on top of a litany of animal-related charges.

The former zookeeper is said to have negotiated the deal for his clothing line with Odaingerous over phone calls conducted from prison.

Tiger King was a ratings hit for Netflix when it was released during lockdown, with more than 64 million households reportedly tuning in.

The series focused primarily on Exotic, his history of animal abuse, and his scheme to arrange the murder-for-hire of Baskin.

Baskin runs an animal sanctuary, which eventually became Big Cat Rescue Corp.
