Some of those claws are sharp! You will have to watch out for scratching, biting, kicking, scrambling, butting, and spitting (if you treat a camel or bill an owner too much money). You will have to be prepared to take care of almost any animal that is brought in, so expect the unexpected. Just when you think you've seen it all, you may be called upon to perform artificial resuscitation on a jellyfish.
