Name: Abbie Peterson
Location: Worthing, England
Experience: Abbie has an Animal Management diploma and a Masters in Zoology. She built up animal experience through volunteering for the RSPCA and exotic animal rescue centres.
About: “I love being able to work with animals and disprove previous misconceptions/fear of them. Seeing people's faces when they realise an animal isn't actually scary is one of my favourite parts of the job.
My favourite ZooLab animals are my dumbo rats (Badger, Moose, Pumpkin and Peanut) and millipedes (Maura and Michael)."
Interesting Fact: Abbie once trained a chicken to complete an obstacle course.
