Re: software development professional seeking to switch to zoological industry; how?

Agree there, doing education next to working with/close to reptiles/animals is better than doing an education and only after that making a switch in which case you have to compete with fresh graduates that are cheaper than you and have a relevant university degree.

Perhaps continuing with your current work and start doing some charity work with local reptile shelters, zoo's, veterinaries, or the like would be a good starting point to get some professional experience?
