Around this time of the year, a lot of us are thinking about the creepy-crawlers. It’s all part of the fun of Halloween. On the serious side, there are careers where creepy creatures are part of daily operations.
Recently, CareerCast.com, a job search and career website, identified the nation’s creepiest careers. “Forensic Entomologist, who studies insects that invade a person’s dead body and decipher insect life cycles to determine the time and manner of death, is the creepiest career on our list,” according to Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com. “These little bugs can even offer clues as to when and if a body part was moved after death and the types of injuries that may have occurred.” Lee is quoted in a PR Newswire release.
Other creepy jobs that made the list: Pest control specialist who must eliminate insects and rodents, reptologist who studies creatures with green scaly skin, and an arachnologist involved in the study of all sorts of spiders, ticks, and mites.
