How many years of study does a zoologist have to take???
Also,Begining and ending of the salary???
3 science related cources????
Job duty???

This question is very difficult to answer. There is no such job as a zoologist!

To receive a degree in zoology. You would have to take a number of courses and this would depend upon what aspect of zoology you were studying. Four years of coursework in such things as developmental biology, comparative Anatomy, Animal Physiology, wildlife management, ecology, systematics, and more.

Wildlife zoologists can make about the same as a teacher.
