    Re: were do you learn

    I don't keep hots and never will however I have handled and taken care of them in a veterinary setting and also when I was working at a nature center and the Bronx Zoo. The best way to learn is to volunteer at a zoo or to find a mentor that responsibly keeps Hots.

    One thing I truly urge you to do is read everything you can, also don't learn from some one who thinks that they can hold their hots ( you'd be amazed at some people) You need to be taught how to use a hook and restraint tubes.

    Have fun, learn and be careful.
