>>What are the options for making a living in herpetology (breeding, zookeeper, selling milked venom?) And do any colleges have a Herpetology major.


The potential options are as diverse as the animals themselves. It can range from breedin snakes in your basement (which some people have done quite lucratively with rare species or unusual morphs), all the way up to getting a Ph.D. and conducting research at a University (and a Ph.D. opens lots and lots of doors, allowing you to obtain scientific permits to study rare animals in protected nature reserves for example).

As for what to study, that can range from zoology (with a herp bias of course) through to biochemistry or molecular biology. Which University to target is quite dependent on what angle you want to take.

All the best
