:how much do herpetologist get a year because am planning to be one in the future.
Rolando, I am one, and we don't make much. Being a herpetologist is something you have to consider only if you are really into the animals. I don't make much money but I really enjoy working with the collection that I do at my museum.
It is a very rewarding job but one that doesn not offer much financial compensation. But there are many other rewards.
