Okay providing you get your work visa you might like to try the zoos, veterinarians, theme parks which have animal exhibits such as Sea World, the RSPCA shelters etc. At your age they would not have to pay big wages and you would get a job doing what you like. I think if you do have a natural flair for working with them then you should have little trouble getting a job but I would try to zoos first, then work down. Hope this helps. :)

mate I'm 18 and from australia and i tried to get work in the UK and France; and it is FAR! easier to get work in Australia at 18; in australia people start work especially part time work a lot younger, around the age of 14/15 where as in the UK and France this is not the case; thus when you try and find work in australia you will not immediatley be seen to be inexperienced because of your age, as is sometimes the case in Europe.
(causing me to often add an extra years on my cv's :) )
good luck with your job searchin!
