I thought about that one, then realized although I like the ocean and everything in it, it also has every possible way to die that I'd hate to experience

Well, I like growing trees so I am going to say botanist. You can specialize on like flowers, trees, agriculture. and you can work for forests, parks, universities, agriculture companies etc.
If you have made your mind about animals though, your work environment doesn't depend on your field necessarily. You should decide what would you like to do with the animals. Would you like to go outdoors and observe wild animals, Would you like to grow baby animals, care for them and maybe educate them. You can cure animals, You can make researches in lab to uncover their mysteries. Maybe you would like to educate other people about animals. Or maybe digging the soil and uncovering the animals lived millions of years ago.
Those are the things that I can think of and yes you can choose more than one at the same time.

Thank you, I like mostly all those but I guess if I had to choose just one I'd go with observing wild animals

Anthropology. We're animals too. But we're just on the top of the crop - LIFE-CYCLE.

Mi Vida. Mi Madrid.

You can be a zoologist -- they study a little bit of all the animals. Even sponges. I didn't know some creatures were so fascinating, until taking my zoology class.

You can end up working for the government, or even some big company.

Or...Microbiologist. They can make a lot of money! And they are quite needed. But, your probably meant bigger animals. :)

So many! I am going to make this as non boring as possible.

Bioligist- you get to work with animals and basically anything that lives. You study their habits and dissect them and all sorts of fun things.

Astronomer: You get to use awesome telescopes to look at stars, nebulas, and other crazy outer space things

Gynceologist- Not sure if spelling this right but you study skin, and why moles grow, hair grows, how skin works, and all sorts of that.

Neurologist- My favorite. You study everything about brains! Rat brains, cat brains, horse brains, bird brains, human brains....creepy but fun.

Ecologist- Nature! Trees! Ecosystems! I think you get the idea.

These are the most common. Have fun being a scientist
