THE Australia Zoo handler bitten on the shoulder and neck by an overexcited tiger late last year is back on his feet.

The Beerwah tourist attraction updated its social media followers early this morning with a short post.

"Australia Zoo would like to thank everyone for their support and prayers for David Styles over the last few weeks," it read.

"Dave is doing well after spending time with his family and friends over the holiday season. "We're so thankful that Dave is fine and back on his feet again."

The 33-year-old Maroochydore man had to be airlifted to hospital on November 26 after he was bitten by tiger Charlie during a show.
