Definition and Nature of the Work

Zoologists are biological scientists who study animals. They observe animals both in their natural habitats and in the laboratory in order to learn as much as possible about animal life. Zoologists study the origin and development of animal species, the habits and behavior of animals, and the interaction between animals and their environment. They also do research to learn how animal diseases develop and how traits are passed from generation to generation.

Zoologists are sometimes known as animal scientists or animal biologists. Their field is zoology, or animal biology. Like botany and microbiology, zoology is a major division of biology. Zoology is a broad field. It includes the study of animals as varied as elephants, kangaroos, and killer sharks. Zoologists work in all areas of animal life, studying both simple and complex processes. For example, a zoologist might examine the overall structure of a cat or just the microscopic cells in its brain. Zoologists study the life functions of a single animal, such as an insect, as well as the behavior of whole colonies of ants, flocks of birds, or bands of gorillas.

Most zoologists are employed by colleges and universities where they teach and do research. Large numbers of zoologists work for government agencies in such areas as wildlife management, conservation, and agriculture. A few work for private companies, such as pharmaceutical companies or biological supply houses that sell animal specimens to laboratories. Some zoologists are employed by museums and zoos.

Although their jobs may differ widely, most zoologists spend at least part of their time doing research or laboratory work. They dissect and examine animal specimens. They prepare slides so that they can observe such things as diseased tissue and chemical reactions under light or electron microscopes. Since they often perform experiments with animals, many zoologists keep laboratory animals, such as mice, fruit flies, and guinea pigs. They may breed these animals, raise their offspring under controlled conditions, or test the effects of drugs on them. Some zoologists observe animals in their natural habitats. These zoologists study mating practices, aggression, life histories, and the group behavior of animals. Zoologists may make use of computerized information as well as a wide variety of special laboratory equipment and scientific methods. They are sometimes assisted by biological technicians.

Zoologists often specialize in the study of one group of animals. For example, ichthyologists concentrate on the fish family. Some ichthyologists provide basic knowledge about fish. They classify fish according to species and study their distribution, size, and growth. They also study the behavior of fish, including migration patterns and feeding habits. Some specialize in one group of fish, such as sharks. Others work with one aspect of fish, such as their anatomy. Ichthyologists serve as fish experts on museum staffs or sometimes write books on the identification of fish. Most teach and do research in colleges and universities. Other zoologists working with fish concentrate on fish that have economic or recreational uses. These scientists are often called fishery biologists. They may work with trout in state fish hatcheries or do research on fish that have commercial uses, such as tuna, cod, or salmon. Zoologists also specialize in other groups of animals. Herpetologists, for example, are experts on reptiles, frogs, and salamanders. Entomologists study insects.

Some zoologists specialize in one area of animal life that may cover many species. Animal taxonomists, for example, identify and classify the many different species of animals. Animal physiologists examine the life processes of animals. They do research on their growth, movement, reproduction, respiration, circulation, and other functions. They also study how the environment of animals affects their life processes and functions. Embryologists focus on the early growth of animals from their beginning as a fertilized cell to their birth or hatching. There are many other kinds of zoologists.

Education and Training Requirements

You generally need a doctoral degree to become a zoologist. You should major in zoology or biology as an undergraduate. In graduate school, you may want to specialize in genetics, embryology, or another area in animal science. Graduates with a bachelor's degree can get some jobs, such as advanced biological technician, but their opportunities for advancement are limited. People who have earned a master's degree in zoology or a related field are qualified for some jobs as teachers or research assistants. You usually need a doctoral degree, however, to get a job teaching and doing research at a university or working as an administrator. It usually takes four years to earn a bachelor's degree and another one or two years to earn a master's degree. You need to go to school for an additional two or three years to receive a doctoral degree. In order to keep up with new developments in animal science, you should continue to study throughout your career.

Getting the Job

Your professors or college placement office may be able to help you find a job in zoology. You can apply directly to colleges and universities, zoos, and museums or private companies. You can also check with government agencies about getting work in research, conservation, inspection, management, or another special area. You sometimes need to pass a civil service examination to get a government job. Other sources of job openings include the classified ads in newspapers and professional journals.

Advancement Possibilities and Employment Outlook

Advancement opportunities are good, especially for zoologists who have a doctoral degree. Zoologists can become project leaders or research directors. Those who work in zoos and museums can become administrators or head curators. Zoologists working for the government can advance to such positions as head of a state fishery or national wildlife refuge. Zoologists employed in colleges and universities can advance to the rank of full professor. Another way that a zoologist can advance is by becoming recognized as an authority in one area of animal science. This kind of recognition generally comes to zoologists who have done important research and have published their findings in professional journals.

Employment of biological scientists in general is projected to grow about as fast as average for all occupations through 2014. There will continue to be demand for zoologists, but opportunities will be limited because of the small size of this field. However, due to public interest in preserving the environment and protecting many species of animals, federal and state governments are devoting more funds to research in animal science. The work of zoologists is also important in finding cures for diseases and improving food supplies. There will probably be openings for trained experts who can contribute to the solution of such problems. Competition for jobs teaching in universities, however, is expected to be keen.

Working Conditions

The working conditions of zoologists vary widely. Some zoologists spend much of their time in clean, well-lighted, well-equipped laboratories. Others work outdoors, observing wildlife and perhaps making do with improvised equipment. Many zoologists spend some of their time in offices and classrooms. Their working hours are generally flexible but often total more than forty hours per week. Some experiments and projects need to be observed around the clock. Therefore, zoologists may work rotating shifts. Zoologists often spend extra time attending meetings, writing up their findings, or reading to learn about the findings of other scientists.

Zoologists sometimes work independently. At other times they work as part of a scientific team. They must be able to cooperate with and communicate their ideas to other people. They should also be interested in animals and willing to spend many hours working with them or doing research on them. They need to use careful, precise methods in their work.

Earnings and Benefits

Earnings for zoologists depend on their education and experience, as well as the location and the kind of job. In 2004 the median annual income of zoologists was $50,330. In 2005 zoologists who worked for the federal government in nonsupervisory, supervisory, and managerial positions earned an average salary of $101,601. Benefits generally include paid holidays and vacations, insurance, and retirement plans.

Hi im Hannah, i live in Wales and im hoping to go to Oxford to study zoology, however they offer natural sciences as a course and then you can specialize in zoology, so it might help people that are looking for an animal related course but dont know what to do exactly yet. I wanted to know whether it would be best to study here in England/Wales or go to America to study? This website is more helpful than some i've looked at but it would be good if you could put up descriptions for all specialised areas of zoology, not just fish. thankyooou

I am currently a zoology major in Kansas and am in my 3rd year. It is a very long and difficult road to a zoology degree, but I also work at a zoo, and am told by many of my keeper friends that it is very worth it to be in school for the length needed.
Some of the classes required where I go to school, which I am told is more than others, are mammalogy (mammals), ornithology (birds), a combination of ichthyology (fish), herpetology (reptiles/amphibians), entomology (insects), plant taxonomy (yes, you have to take a plant class, even though you're an animal major) and a few others. Ok, A LOT of others.

It is a wonderfully informative major, but you MUST be dedicated to it, or else you will not make it through. I see that most of you are still in high school. Take chemistry classes, biology classes, whatever you can, while still in high school. This will save you a lot of headache when you get to your first year. You will have a lot of general education classes you will want to get over with, but you will want those around when all you have left are biology classes. That is what is happening with me. My next semester looks like this: Genetics (lecture with a 3 hour lab), Ecology (lecture with 3 hour lab), and Ichthyology (also with 3 hour lab). I also have a chemistry class. It is not going to be easy, but it will be worth it in the end when I am taking care of the primates at one of my favorite zoos :)

There are many jobs in the biology area that you can get with a basic general biology degree (if your university of choice offers it). Check out biologyjobs.com, or science-jobs.org. Also, look into getting an intership before you hit the job field. This will boost your resume IMMENSELY!

Hope this helps you youngsters! Good luck! :)

Kevin - I wasn't telling people to settle or trying to discourage anyone. I just want everyone who is interested in this field to have a realistic view of it. Most of the people leaving comments sound like they do not fully grasp how much hard work it is and I am just preparing them for that reality. These people can decide for themselves if they think they want to go forward. However, since I have a degree in this field, I have seen first hand the bitterness and disappointment many of my past classmates have had when they pursued the same degree program. They didn't realize how much hard work it was going to be and decided to change majors or decided that it really wasn't what they were looking for. That's all I was trying to get across.

I am a Junior in High School, and i realize what zoologist do not just looking at pretty animals It excites me to know i can study animals even if its not always in a pretty setting, but something im woundering is besides my dream of getting a zoology degree and becoming one, I have this passion and just strong impulse to be the one who proves the existence of Sasquatch! i know i know but its just something (idk why)i have to do before i die. So my concern is that im thinking the wrong path for me, I mean i dont wanna go out and find like all the mythological creatures like nessy the lochness monster just bigfoot :) though i may be interested in cryptozoology but im not sure i wanna study random animals that are most likely made up, i need more information about what i should do since my interests are clearly of studying behavior and all the regular things for zoologist but i still want to go out and find bigfoot even study him once i find him

Hi everyone. I don't think all of you grasp the concept of the zoology field. It isn't all field work. Most field work is done maybe a few months out of the year and the rest is spent behind a desk or in a lab reviewing the information collected from the site. Besides if you want to do research or field work you usually have to have an M.S. and in most cases a Ph.D. It is very serious hard work and isn't about playing with animals. For those of you wanting to simply just play with animals you may want to keep that as a hobby not a career. The best chance of studying exotic animals such as big cats you may want to get involved in a zoo keeper program. That may be the best route and there are degree programs specifically for that especially in Florida and California. To be an expert in a field you need to get a Ph.D. and also have research to back up your expertise. It takes 20+ years to establish an expertise in a zoology-related field. And I suggest volunteering or getting a part-time job to gain any type of animal experience and then you can decide if that is really what you want. I have a zoology degree. The coursework is very difficult, hard work, and not for everyone. So please don't make this decision lightly. It is a very serious and intense and not for people looking to play with animals.

Just a comment to Josiah. It is not hard for homeschoolers to get Ph.D.s! I myself was homeschooled, though I did get my high school diploma since my parents listed me in an umbrella school that managed my high school credits. However, I am currently in my senior year in college and applying to grad schools. I also know many more who were home educated and are attending masters and doctoral programs. Homeschooling should not and will not hold you back academically! If you have a goal, keep trying for it! You can achieve! :)

Alyssa - as a fellow Zoologist I wish someone such as yourself would have been there to offer advice before I chose my career path. Zoology is indeed not a field to be entered into lightly. Employment is scarce, working conditions and wages are not ideal for the lifestyle I would like. I would also encourage anyone interested in "Playing with animals" "Only wanting to observe animals" and "Not working in a laboratory" to actually evaluate what being a zoologist entails.

I encourage all of you who are interested to look into it thoroughly. Try not to be be discouraged by hard schoolwork. Even if you find out zoology isn't for you maybe you'll find another related science. In the U.S right now many students are opting for non professional certificates instead of full degrees and settling for low end jobs, and i hope most of you will not make that mistake. you owe it to yourself to aim high and not give up and settle, and besides the world needs more educated people. even if you don't end up getting a doctorate studying science and the scientific method will help you make decisions and think for yourself for the rest of your life. So if you think you might be interested don't let anyone discourage you or tell you it will be too much work. It CAN befor you, and it can be for anybody who is interested in the subject.

Heyy! My name is Calum. I've always wanted to work in the environment field, but I wanted to know that if I become a zoologist will I actually get to make a direct difference? I don't just want to look at them through a sheet of glass. I want to get up close and save some animals from extinction, conserve them, you know? Is zoology the best field for me in that sense? Or is there a better field where there's more hands on and not just taking notes... actually doing something? Thanks XD

Hello! I am a freshman in college and all my life I've wanted to be a vet. During my first year of college I worked as a vterinary technician in an animal emergency clinic and loved it but after conversing with the several vets I have worked with I don't think I would find the work satisfactory. My new found love is the mysterious creatures of the ocean. I checked into marine biology and I am just wondering if there is more oppertunity in obtaining a title in zoology and specailizing in marine life rather than a title in biology and specializing in marine life. I'm just not sure. And also if you had any insight on a governmental job versus a private company or university employment. I'd really appriciate your opinion! Thanks so much!!!

Hey guys just found this page when i was bored and just want to say to you's all the zoology is a fantastic job, especially if you like animals. i already have my master but and i am studying towards getting my doctoral degree. I choose to specialise in wolves, lions, monkeys and zebras. My choices are random unlike other students who studies one whole species ie big cat/primates. I study all other aspects of the course aswell but these animals are my favourite and the ones i want to work with most. The pay for the job is good and the work is very enjoyable. The area is limited for jobs in "active wild work" but they are shouting out for people in "active lab work". This is just as enjoyable and you get a little more hands on experence. The area of zoology has is many sub unit courses so i recommend studying 2 or 3 in your first 2 years and then either continue with all of them or choose 1 or 2 to finish. This allows more options for you and makes your course work more enjoyable. Hope this little note helps some of you.

The places you want to go for Zoology are mostly places where you can go for a good vet school... schools that have a lot of funded research are also great places to be because of the work-study opportunities. Michigan State and Ohio State are two good places to look into.

I'm only 13 too but I'm really interested in zoology. I really want to study small mammals, but preferably endangered ones, such as naked mole rats and sloths. I want to go to Texas A&M then go to work at the San Antonio Zoo.
Personally, I don't see why people dislike the idea of having to work in a lab. Research isn't that bad. I don't see why that would discourage people from wanting to be a zoologist. I think it's the best job in the world. You get to work with animals and there's no putting down animals involved (vet). And although, yes, you probably won't be with animals that often, you still get to see them and study them :)

Hello,
I am a high school student at Heath High School, I live in a small town and I really hope to get out one day. I've always wanted to go to the University of Louisville, I have good grades. I have always dreamed about being a zoologist every since before i can remember I dont even know a time where I wanted to be anything else, i have studied this profession, researched it and wrote paper after paper about it, but i still have so many questions to be answered like. How hard is it to get this job, I am willing to work as hard as it takes but I would like to know something, and in this job are there chances of you ever traveling far like to different states or does that just depend on who you work for? and I wouldn't know what area to choose in this? but if you could please contact me by email that would be so helpful in helping me to follow my dream and do what I love.

Hi, I'm an adult changing career fields. I love large animals, went to high school for animal science but didn't pursue my dream of becoming a vet because of my fear of rodents. Most people laugh at me because I have this phobia, it's an oxymoron actually.

My high school animal science teacher told me to think about another career because I'd have to work in labs with mice & rats; so i did.

I'm miserable! I love tigers, wolves, lions, horses, alpacas, etc. I want to work with them but I don't know if it's wise at my age (I'm 40). I have a BA in Liberal Arts.

I do not like being stuck in a lab or office. I want to work with large animals; even just one type like horses or alpacas.



Please offer advice for employment opportunites in the animal science field that i may pursue. I love getting right in with the animal, getting dirty, cleaning them, taking care of them and helping them.

You can answerme directly on yahoo also.

I too am 13 and I am obsessed with animals. I once wanted to be a vet but you would have to put down animals and operate on them and some wont always live... I am thinking about taking my classes online so I can get into a job that pays well, but that I am comfortable when working with animals... I always volunteer at shelters and I will do anything there. I clean litter pans, clean vomit :( , walk dogs, brush them, help them meet new families, train them, and just about anything else! As you can see, I love animals and I will die if I don't have a job that interacts with animals like maybe a zookeeper like feeding, bathing, training, or anything as long as I don't get eaten!

Josiah, I don't think you should let the GED discourage you. Start at a Community College, and earn an Associate Degree in your field of Interest such as Zoology or Biology. Then transfer to a 4-year College/University to earn a Bachelor's Degree. 4-year institutions generally welcome transfer students from Community Colleges, especially ones with good grades. Community Colleges offer an excellent path for your college education, and even save money your first 2 or 3 years. I did this on a path to a graduate degree and eventually I became a Professor !

Answer to Alice's question: Yeah they are like a vet but they do research involving cutting the animals open to see how certain medicines, etc. effect them and to study cell development and diseases.

I don't think anybody on here understands that there is more to a zoologist than just doing field work and studying animals in their habitats. It also involves writing reports, doing lab work (for a lot of the time), teaching, and communicating to the public, so the job of a zoologist is interesting, but it is also quite sophisticated.

Hey mike,

I am currently going to school for zoology. I am not the greatest student ever. Infact I am terrible at math. A lot of people tell me that I should switch majors and find something else. But I too love animals and can think of nothing better than becoming a zoologist. I am currently a junior and half way there so I think that if I can do it, even with my math problems, that you should not settle for second best and be the zoologist you want to be.

I'm currently 15 and live in Spokane, Washington. We're supposed to research jobs that we're interested in for AVID. Are there any colleges nearby that would offer a chance to major in zoology, or would I have to travel long distance?
I'm also curious about one other thing. Would a zoologist have a choice between doing fieldwork or lab-work, or is that up to the employer? I would love to track and observe animals, but I'm not fond of poring over reports and genetic spreadsheets in a laboratory.

Thank you so much for the helpful information on this site. I'm a lot better informed now.

Well, I am a Freshman in high school and I am not really sure what I want to be yet, but it's something along the lines of a vet or a zookeeper. I want to work in a zoo or some type of environment where I can interact with the animals and feed them, etc. But, I want to get paid a reasonable amount of money, like $80,000 per year. Here's the catch: I want to work with exotic animals ONLY!!! I want to be the one to feed, exercise, and play with the animals. My favorite animal is a tiger so I might want to specialize in large felines. I want to know what my job title would be, how much I would get paid, and most importantly what college courses I would have to take and how long I would have to go to college.

Hello everyone. I saw all your comments and questions and so I figure I will answer a couple of them.
Audrey-My advice to you is to take some college credits while you are in high school. Not only will you benefit from that when you go to college, but you will also be able to figure out whether you are going towards the right career path. As for how long you go to school to become a zoologist depends entirely on what you want to do. An undergraduate (bachelor) degree takes about 4 years, depending on if you take courses in high school and how long you take to complete the required amount of credits. If you go on for you masters it can take another 2 years. A doctorate degree takes an additional 3 years. For some people biology isn’t a difficult subject, for others it is. Make sure you study hard and get good grades because this will ensure that you will get into a good university.
Andrew- See my answer to Audrey. As for whether the job is hard, it depends on what you plan on doing. Make sure it is something you are passionate about and do as much research as you can. Get out and deal with animals as often as you can. You can also do volunteer work that will look good on a resume. Starting young and getting as much experience as you can is your best route.
Zach- Again see my responses above. You won’t usually be alone but it depends on what you want to do. If you are wanting to go and do field studies, such as going out into the field and seeing an animal in their natural habitat, you will more than likely be working on a grant. With that you can either be working in a group or you will be by yourself. Caring for your pets, I’m sure you’ll figure that out. This isn’t an easy field to get into but it is worth it. The more education you have the better. Also knowing the right people can help, but I think there are a lot of jobs that can work like that. Job experience is a big thing. Volunteer as much as you can. You can search online for volunteer work or go to any animal related facility (zoo, vet, animal shelter) and see if they have any type of volunteer programs you can get involved in.
Danica-Please see all my answers above. Colleges that offer the best courses depend on what you want to do exactly. You can research Universities online. Here is a short list: http://www.f1study.com/html/pgmid99.html
I hope that answers a lot of your questions! If you have further questions I can try and help. I may not be able to respond right away but I will try. You can email me here: caitlin486@yahoo.com

Ok I have been reading through all of the comments and most if not all are 14 year old girls that like animals and want to travel and "view them in their natural habitat". First things first is that this field is a hard science and involves a lot more then just looking at whales. Yes, an interest and passion for animals is great, however, many many people like animals and that doesn't really separate you. During my first two years at OSU as a Zoology major involed cellular biology and physiology, meaning very little of "observing animals in their natural habitat. High Math, Chemistry, and molecular biology are key. This career is great and intresting, however, dont assume that you will be traveling all around the world as an expert in large cats, dream jobs aside this career is fun and enjoyable for those who; Love science, are curious of nature, are patient, have interests in animals, and most importantly can study and integrate multiple fields of science and apply knowledge.

Hi, my name is Alexandra. I am very fascinated in animals and was wondering what kind of field of zoology or field related to zoology should i take if my wish is not to study them, but to help them. I do not want to study them and spend my days in a laboratory, or just observe them. I want to actually help them, help save animals. I think it would be really interesting to travel to exotic places and help mammals, or to do something directly with animals, or something in a reserve. Please give me suggestions, there is so many options in zoology, and its hard to find the one that suites what I want. I would appreciate some help a lot, I am not sure of what to do.

hello im 18 years old and i live in alabama, i have been fascinated by animals my whole life and plan on going into the zoology field. I am a senior in high school but i have already taken some colege classes. i have also taken a corse of marien biology at my school. im not the best student in math though i am in the top 20 of my class. i have worked with animals before voluntering at my local humain sociaty over the past few summers. but the thing is that i have some health problems i have ashma realy bad and im allergic to many things including rabbits and mast things in that family. i also have an intercuranial pressure problem so i cant get to over heated and stuff like that and i was worried that that would ruin my chances of having a good career in zoology. i have already talk to professors at the college that im going to next year(i have already been exsepted) and i know that animal biology is the feild for me doing things like animal behavior and animal husbantry and things like that in the feild as well as lab and i was hopping that you could give me some advice on this and see what you think about what i wont to do mixed with my health thing. im not going to allow my health to hold me back but i just wonted a proffesionals advice..

Get out and deal with animals as often as you can. You can also do volunteer work that will look good on a resume. Starting young and getting as much experience as you can is your best route.
Zach- Again see my responses above. You won’t usually be alone but it depends on what you want to do. If you are wanting to go and do field studies, such as going out into the field and seeing an animal in their natural habitat, you will more than likely be working on a grant. With that you can either be working in a group or you will be by yourself. Caring for your pets, I’m sure you’ll figure that out. This isn’t an easy field to get into but it is worth it. The more education you have the better. Also knowing the right people can help, but I think there are a lot of jobs that can work like that. Job experience is a big thing. Volunteer as much as you can. You can search online for volunteer work or go to any animal related facility (zoo, vet, animal shelter) and see if they have any type of volunteer programs you can get involved in.
Danica-Please see all my answers above. Colleges that offer the best courses depend on what you want to do exactly. You can research Universities online. Here is a short list: http://www.f1study.com/html/pgmid99.html
I hope that answers a lot of your questions! I'll check back to see if you having any further questions.

I'm a high school biology teacher and currently working on a MA in Zoology through Miami University of Ohio. Suggestions for those of you entering college would be as the article suggests...work on attaining a BA in a broad scientific field like Biology, in which you could take anatomy, physiology, or zoology classes. As a grad student you could then work on a MA or MS in zoology or more focused scientific field within zoology. One school I suggest, at least for individuals involved in education after completing their BA, is the school I currently attend. A program, the Global Field Program, allows you to attain a MA while traveling the world. As part of my first class, I just returned from studying in Belize for 10 days! Not all just fun, but a lot of work...and well worth it!

Hi!
I'm thinking about becoming an zoologist. I mainly want to study the behavior of animals and their reaction to the environment around them. I will not dissect, and I would prefer to study an certain species in its natural habitat (haven't decided which species...)I wouldn't mind recreating its habitat in a laboratory for a certain period of time, as long as everything suits the specific animals needs. But I believe you can't learn everything from watching an animal through a man-made environment. There are things we can't remake, and things that affect animals environment/life that we can't even see! If I do decide to study Zoology, what volunteer practices should I be involved in? As soon as I reach the right age, I am going to volunteer with the Humane Society to rescue, and heal injured whales, dolphins and seals of that sort. I also thought of possibly getting some sort of job with my local Zoo.

Hey - I'm a junior in High School, and I would like to know if anybody knows which Ohio school is the best for Zoology? (Or, surrounding states) When I was eight, I decided I wanted to be a zoologist, and nine years later, I've switched from biology to psychology as my area of interest, but, I know this is my path. I have a passion for animals, along with my values to make this world easier to share between humans and animals. I would rather focus on mammalogy with carnivores.

I would die to be an animal behaviorist or, just as good,in animal rehabilitation. This is literally my dream, and I have a relative who is a icthyologist and is going to be a professor along with her husband.

am currently a zoology major in Kansas and am in my 3rd year. It is a very long and difficult road to a zoology degree, but I also work at a zoo, and am told by many of my keeper friends that it is very worth it to be in school for the length needed.
Some of the classes required where I go to school, which I am told is more than others, are mammalogy (mammals), ornithology (birds), a combination of ichthyology (fish), herpetology (reptiles/amphibians), entomology (insects), plant taxonomy (yes, you have to take a plant class, even though you're an animal major) and a few others. Ok, A LOT of others.

Since I was just a year old I have been in love with animals. I have always been the little girl to come home with stray animal's trying to keep or find a good home for them. A girl named Sara and I have helped many animals from dying. It was either we kept them outside on our porch with blankets, and food; or we brought them to the cop shop. I have never let an animal die. The last animal I have helped was my own dog, Venus. After reading things about zoology. I now know what my 10 years of college are going towards.

I really want to work with animals so badly, but for me I'm not good at taking tests and I spend more than five hours studying a day, but I still seem to fail tests. I was wondering if zoology is really hard because I don't want to fail. I mean working with animals has been my passion since middle school and I'm now in my first year of college. So I was just wondering if it is easier than it looks. I will have to take biology, Anatomy, Chemistry, etc and I just don't know if I can spend so many hours studying because I spend my whole free day off from college doing homework and it is stressful. Right when I get up to about eleven at night doing homework.

Wow, thanks for this information. I'm aiming to study Zoology at university after my A-levels and have just been researching about it just to make sure. I was just wondering, would taking chemistry be necessary to go on to study zoology at university? I'm very strong in biology, and not bad in chemistry, it's just that I'd much rather not take the subject.

Also, how hard would it be to get employed by a government in this field?

I want to become a zoologist but right now from what i know i have better chances of becoming an construction engineer. But, in like i would prefer to work with animals.
I am going to my second last year of high school and need some help. I am an average student, and i dont get the greatest nor the worst marks. So, to become a zoologist would there be a chance for me? How hard is it to work in a zoo and study animals?
Any luck? or better go on with my other choice?

I Love animals and I always wanted to become a Zoologist. I did want to become a Crime Scene Investigator or a Forensic Technician, but I realized that I would do better at Zoology and I love animals very much. I love spending time with animals, I have 3 dogs a cat and some chickens and rosters, I play with them all the time and take my dogs out for walks. But I always think about what it would be like meeting wil animals you don't see everyday and saving them when they need help.

I Love Animals, they are family to me.

But I have a question,

If you get an animal who doesn't have a family and can't survive in the wild and it's a baby, can I take it home and take care of it until it can go on it's own??

hi my name is isaiah, and I have so far been in field of culinary arts. I enjoy but most of the time I always catch myself wondering about animals in lots of different ways. For example, I often thing of random questions about all different types of animals through out the day. I make sure that I right them down, and when I get a chance I look them up. I also wonder about the biological part of animals as well as animal behavior. I guess what I'm getting at here is I am still only 22 years old with a great mind that wants to be challenged as well as being happy and well stimulated. I feel that zoology might be where I want to go. If you have any suggestions on specific courses I might want to try out, that would be appreciated.
