"My name is Joshua Lambert. I grew up in Florida, There I was able to see lots of wildlife. I played with snakes, lizards, alligators, all kinds of reptiles. I've always enjoyed exotic animals. Working here I'm still able to see exotic pets people have and I like that. Our hospital is like no other, we take care of injured wildlife, so its very interesting to see what is going to come through the door. We have seen deer, rabbits, all kinds of birds, even a bear cub. I enjoy helping treat the animals, I find the diagnostics very interesting also. I enjoy my job, every day is different and interesting."
