    Whoo I'm so excited! I just got home from my induction day at Taronga Zoo!

    I am now a proud volunteer keeper in the Herpetofauna section at the zoo!

    OMG so exciting :) I can't wait to start!
    I was 1 of only 3 positions available in the herpetofauna section, thats out of over 200 people that applied to volunteer at the zoo so im totally stoked!

    Just thought i would share my excitement with my fellow herpers!

    Cheers guys ;)

    I was a volunteer keeper there over 10 years ago. It was much easier to get in those days. Nice memories.

    Well done, thats a real accomplishment and reflection of their trust in you and your knowledge and experience with reptiles.

    You should be proud.
