Dr. James Liu 🐒  Proof that working with wildlife and living in New York aren't mutually exclusive.


Happy #nationalzookeeperweek! #tbt to sneaking over to feed the rhinos at the @sdzsafaripark and @sandiegozoo when I used to work with their frogs and iguanas! Shoutout to @matthias0276 and his dad Jeff. #sandiegozoo #rhino

Happy National Zookeeper Week! Here's a throwback to the best keeper gig in the world, the LAIR at @losangeleszoo . Shoutout to my mentors @lookunderrocks and @bettymwhite. (She asked if she could touch my snake, I told her she could even hold it. Then we laughed and laughed.) πŸπŸ‘΅πŸ» #nationalzookeeperweek

A nice #Mexican indigo snake from the other night hanging out by the last water of the dry season. We celebrated with some killer sopa. 😍😍😍

I don't know why I'm posting this. My dad doesn't have an instagram or Facebook, he's always been best at judging silently, from a distance. I owe him pretty much everything, so I hope he doesn't expect to be paid back. #fathersday #bill

Thanks for the #hbd shouts everyone. Sadly, nothing will ever compare to the birthday I spent with @laurasc4 diving off canoes with the naked village kids of Bosawas. Let's all go back. #flagday #wtfitstrumpsbdaytoo?

Go #warriors. If you don't win I'm purposely getting bit next time by this panamint rattler. @warriors

A curious little #whipsnake from San Diego county to brighten up your #Sunday 🐍
