>>Venom research might be an option to look in to. What is the requred education? Is it difficult to find jobs in venom research? Do you spend more time in the field or lab and which do you enjoy more?

Venom research is a broad area of study, ranging from biochemistry to genetics to molecular biology to pharmacology/physiology. As with other areas of research, to truly open all the doors a Ph.D. is a must.

I spend about half my time in the field and half in the lab. I love being out catching the snakes (since my research is driven by my love and wonderment for the animals themselves) but I also thrive on the lab discoveries (finding cobra-toxins in ratsnakes gave me quite a thrill!).

Cheers
