Ryan Martinez is a lifelong reptile enthusiast and a current zookeeper at the Miami Zoo. In the episode, Ryan discusses his early days in the alligator-wrestling industry, how it has changed the trajectory of his life, and how he feels about the practice now. Ryan walks us through a day in the life of a Miami zoo keeper, including working on a breeding project for an endangered species of Cyclura, and working with giant monitor species. We also chat about Ryan’s home collection of Rhino Rat Snakes and Baron’s Racers and wrap the conversation up with Ryan’s skull articulation projects.
