I'm an 18-year-old senior in high school in central Texas. I live just outside of Austin. Please provide me with information about how to become a herpetologist. I love amphibians and reptiles of all species, especially exotic snakes (pythons & boas). I am looking to become a breeder and possibly work at a zoo as a profession. I really have no idea about how to become a herpetologist, so if you can, please be as descriptive as possible. Thank you for your time in reading this message.
