This is a very interesting question i must say. To answer this i have some questions to ask you. How did you get the idea of becoming a Zoologist ? Because if you were genuinely interested in zoology you would not have asked this question.

Are you following your peer group ? It is very simple to know why a person is interested in a particular subject. Are you interested to have pets at home ? If yes then this must be one of the possibilities.

Are you always inquisitive to know more about animals and keep reading about them, then this is the subject for you. Still it is not easy to study Zoology. Its not only about animals but everything about animals , internal and external structure, day and night behavior, systems etc and many more things.

Now a days every body is interested to keep animals as their pets but this does not mean they want to become a zoologist.

We study zoology as a separate subject from std eighth till 12th and then we actually decide the subjects for graduation , now here we come to know about our interests. If we choose zoology as one of the subjects this shows that we are interested to study zoology. Once you decide to do your graduation with the subject you automatically go for your post graduation with the same subject and this is how you become a zoologist and of course you may do your PhD.also. When you are interested in a subject you only know how and why.

All the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The zoologist is a person or scientist who studies the animals, their behavior, distribution, classification and physiology in their natural habitat and in captivity.

as per your question, if you have interest in studying animals, if you love animals and you have passion to work for animals, then you have interest to become a zoologist.

You can judge your aptitude regarding being a zoologist, then you can test yourself, by studying zoology, animal behavior, animal conservation. If you understand the subject and can explain the things then you have an aptitude to become a zoologist. Otherwise to be sure about your career as zoologist, then you can undergo aptitude test conducted by The test report will provide you detailed analysis of your aptitude and interest and accordingly you will be guided for your career options.


Another things are that you should understand the nature of jobs of a zoologist and the places where a zoologist usually work.

The zoologist work in field area such a mountains, cold desert, marine region to study the animals and their behavior. For such jobs the person is supposed to be physically fit, mentally alert and healthy. The person may have to spend many days in fields away from regular official duties and home. For studying nocturnal animals, one has to visit the places of animals during night time. If some is working in laboratory then the zoologist has to spend time in laboratory to study the animals very closely.

The places of work is very important. The person may work as zoologist in school, colleges, universities, research institutions and governmental laboratories. The person will have an opportunity to work as school teacher, college lecturer, scientist and professor in universities and institutions.

The person will work as academicians or as researcher. If you wish to work as researcher, as teacher as scientist in zoology field then have right aptitude to become a zoologist.
