Sylvester Stallone and family embrace their Tiger King obsession by dressing up like the characters

SYLVESTER Stallone and his family have FULLY embraced their Tiger King obsession by dressing up like the characters from the Netflix documentary.

The Hollywood clan even nailed a fictional fight between Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin and Jeff Lowe in a video for fans on Instagram.

The Stallone family smashed the Tiger King Challenge that has been doing the rounds on social media.

Fans on both sides of the Atlantic have been taking part and transforming themselves in order to pay homage to the hit documentary.

And Sylvester's wife Jennifer Flavin took the lead in Stallone's house with a five-star impersonation of Joe Exotic's eccentric nemesis, Carole Baskin.

The 51-year-old beauty wore a baggy pink top and flowers in her hair, as she brought to life a snippet in the show in which Carole takes part in a photoshoot for her Big Cat Sanctuary.

Next up was the couple's daughter Scarlett Rose who became the jailed zookeeper and country music singer.

She slipping into a suede tasseled jacket, flaming cowboy boots and a Stetson hat - not forgetting Joe's familiar moustache.

Next up was her sister Sophia, who let her bleached hair hang in a limp fashion around her face and donned a black T-shirt with protective gloves just like GW Zoo's Head Tiger Keeper Erik Cowie.

Making just as much effort, Sistine covered herself in tattoos and drew hairs on her chin to play Exotic's ex husband John Finlay.

Finally the Hollywood actor turned into devious Jeff Lowe, who now runs the zoo.

Not to be outdone, he sported a bandana, a T-shirt with a huge skull and knives, and a baseball cap just like Lowe's.

Commenting beneath Sylvester's video and photos, one fan said: "A beautiful homage to a great documentary"

As another fan wrote: "ICONS! I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH."

The family missed out a few peripheral  characters including Carole Baskin's wealthy late husband Don Lewis, who she was suspected of killing, though no charges were brought against her.

Carole Baskin's current husband Howard Baskin also didn't make the cut and neither did Myrtle Beach Safari owner Bhagavan "Doc" Antle, who has been forced to deny allegations he runs a harem and killed cubs.

The Netflix doc has opened the door to a world of keeping exotic animals and the docuseries has been trending all over Atlantic.

Scores of people are taking up the Tiger King Challenge as they don leopard print, trucker hats, tattoos and facial hair.
