      I am happy to say that my company does not testing on animals, so the largest animal I’ve ever worked with was the dalmation my family owned when I was younger.

      I don’t work with animals but I have ridden a few horses and pet some cows and steers before so those are big animals that I have “worked with”

      I don’t work on or with animals.
      When I was much younger, before I really understood what ‘exploitation’ really meant, I held a baby Tiger once…and once was enough.

      Horses don’t like me, so I avoid them. 🙂

      The biggest animals I’ve worked with are fish! Smallmouth bass, so they weren’t too big. In my research now, we work in Alaska and sometimes we encounter moose and grizzly bears, although we try to avoid those as best as possible!

      Ahahaha, this is very funny question for me. In my case, the biggest animal is Daphnia, it is a small animal living in water with a size from 0.5 to 5 millimeters.

      My current role doesn’t work with or on animals, however, I use to be a Veterinary Technician (animal nurse). The largest animals I worked with would have to be horses or cows. I really enjoyed the large animal parts of the job. Best experience I ever had was being able to feel a baby calf in utero… it was magical, besides the putting my arm in a cows behind. 🙂
