Many kids are interested in animals but are unsure how to go about getting started. They believe that school will teach them all they will need to know to get a zoo keeper's job or even a veterinarian! They lack the experiences they will need to make informed choices as to what it takes to care for animals and are told that they cannot get those experiences until they have...well.. experience!
Snakes-N-Scales will answer their questions! Bill Boesenberg or Erin Mellini will bring a few selected animals to highlight the exchange and draw on examples of situations encountered and lessons learned through their combined 40 years of experience!
Animals can be any variety of reptiles, amphibians, fish or insects; or we needn't bring any live animals at all if your format requires it.
We will have an in depth discussion on what it takes to do the following jobs:Veterinarian, Vet Tech, Zoo Keeper, Aquarist, Animal Educator and Pet Store Animal Specialist.
