What will be my duties and tasks?
A reptile keeper’s responsibilities usually include feeding, maintaining and cleaning the animals, diet preparation, behavioural observation, record keeping, exhibit maintenance and providing environmental enrichment for the animals in their care. Also, you may conduct behavioural or reproductive research on a species and participate in public education through talks, programs or shows. You are expected to clean enclosures every day, look for any signs of injuries or illness in the reptile, and in the case of sickness or injury, the keeper is responsible for contacting a veterinarian, and sometimes assist a veterinarian.
