Studying animals is called zoology and people who do research on animals are called zoologists. In Europe zoos became popular during the Age of Exploration when explorers and navigators returned from the New World with animals that Europeans had never seen before.
Berlinski, veterinarian at John Ball Zoo, has the kind of intensity the Amur leopard might respect. There's talk of getting a glucose urine test on the ferret, a quick check on an iguana with a sore mouth, then Berlinski hikes up to the secluded animal hospital, nestled amid the trees. At age 32, he went to Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City and signed up for pre-vet classes.
For now, he's living in his family's cottage in Stanton while he looks for a place in Grand Rapids. Ric Berlinski Ask the zoo veterinarian what his favorite animal is, and you figure he'll waffle. He's been defiant and independent, and there have been times he's felt like tearing into somebody. Bob, Bob, Bob," Berlinski calls, heading through the gate carrying a small red cooler filled with medical supplies.
Instead of being kept in cages, many zoos have large areas where animals can move around freely and do the things that they would also do in the wild.
Some of the world’s animals are in danger of becoming extinct and zoos give them a place to survive.
I would skip school for a week at a time, come in when there was a test and get an A, but I was flunking because I didn't do the other stuff. For starters and for most ordinary uses (lashing leftover buckets from bakeries, restaurants, grocery.

The first zoos kept their animals in separate cages or in areas with fences or walls around them. But he gets along pretty well with Bob, a sheep in the petting zoo who has a wound on his foot. It's time to remove the bandage from the long-eared owl, whose badly injured wing Berlinski had to amputate last month. Undaunted, Berlinski kept at it, working at vet clinics, a wolf sanctuary and a drive-through African animal park in Oregon called Wildlife Safari, where he lived in a trailer at the park.
In Indiana: Ric with his mom, Joan, sister Kathy and nephew Devin last spring when Berlinski worked at the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend, Ind. Ric Berlinski is the first full-time veterinarian for John Ball Zoo, providing care for all species at the facility.
Animals that live in the same climate or biome, for example grasslands or deserts, may also be grouped together. Zoos give children tours and teach classes to understand the lives of animals in a better way. Today, zoos try to create an environment that is more natural to the animals and the visitors who watch them.
Bob bolts for the door, but Berlinski wrangles him back and pokes him in the hip with a dose of antibiotics. When Berlinski hitchhiked across the country, fresh out of high school, he was on the edge. A veterinarian's getaway: "When I'm at work, my focus is this animal, this animal and this animal," Berlinski says. Berlinski did his first python eye surgery, then had to tackle Wayne's collapsed liver, which had shut down from lack of food. Later these collections were replaced with bigger places where animals received more care.

Professional zookeepers handle the animals as little possible because too much stress may lead to illnesses. John Ball Zoo Director Bert Vescolani tells of being nervous about the recent chimpanzee physicals. Richard Bennett had served the zoo part time, in addition to conducting his private practice.
Tender, loving care: Berlinski bottle feeds baby hair sheep at the zoo's animal hospital, where young animals are quarantined before being introduced to the zoo. The wary owl hisses and flaps, then glares at Berlinski with piercing yellow eyes, opening and closing her sharp black beak. The Broncos enter the bye week undefeated through six games but with an offense that threatens to submarine their championship ambitions.
He went to Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, a school based in New Jersey with its training on the Caribbean island of St. Many large zoos keep mammals, birds, reptiles and fish from all over the world in separate areas. It looks more like real nature with rocks, plants and trees that animals would normally encounter. Some exhibits use glass plates, others keep visitors and animals apart through rivers, pits or other natural barriers.
But as wild animals started becoming scarcer many zoos have started to breed as many animals as possible.
The director is the head of the zoo and the curator is the manager and supervises the workers.
