Jane Kennedy's office is full of exotic creatures. As a lead zookeeper at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, she takes care of 359 animals every day.
She's worked with tigers, baby elephants, koalas and rhinoceros. "The key is remembering what you're working with and taking the proper precautions," Kennedy said in an interview with CNBC's "Power Lunch."
For example, an adult rhino can weigh up to 5,000 pounds.
"We drive trucks when we're out in the field around them with protocols where you don't get out of the truck if there's a rhino right there. You might jump in the back of the truck and feed the rhino from the back of the truck so you can get a really good look at them and see how they're doing for their health for the day," she said.
