Speedy Morman takes viewers on an in-depth look at some of the most aspirational and unexpectedly cool professions that you probably won’t stumble upon in a job search. On this episode of Jobs Unlisted, find out if Speedy can make it as a zookeeper.
Being an animal caretaker is a demanding job, and Speedy gets his own hands-on experience with the profession by visiting Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona. There, he learns the daily tasks that go into being a zookeeper, including feeding animals like tigers, giraffes, and hyenas. He also receives a reminder of why these animals are considered wild after a sable antelope chases him and the film crew for 30 minutes. Later, Kelvin Peña a.k.a. Brother Nature joins to give Speedy some pointers on how to bond with animals.
