First you need your requirements to apply to a vet school,you dont have to actually graduate from a four year school,like normal doctors.But you need a high gpa.I start vet school next fall in South America{they have a good reptile program},and you go there for 3 years and then back to the states or country where you want to practice for a year.Look online for differant schools,there is one in Austraila thats only like two and a half years long.As for just reptiles you probably couldnt see enough to even pay your student loans off.But you could work at a zoo and help all the animals plus take care of a whole plethera of reptiles or at a animal hospital in bigger cities,or open your own practice.But either way you go its a lot of hard work,but I think you would enjoy it.It is very rewarding.I hope this helps a little,and good luck with what ever field you decide on pursueing.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS
