It runs in the family: Sebastian began his zoo career at the tender young age of 15, selling hot dogs at Zoo Miami (where his mom and brother also worked). After finishing his degree, Sebastian was hired as an elephant keeper. Requiring extensive amounts of training and positive reinforcement, these highly intelligent pachyderms gave Sebastian the foundation he needed to effectively manage animal behavior.
