What does it take to be a professional wildlife photographer?

A picture that makes it to a top wildlife magazine?

Someone that sells a pic or an article about wildlife?

Kinda curious what the professional photographers here think the definition is?

Presently living in Asia

I don't think it's any different than any other professional photographer - generating revenue from the sales of images, whether that's a to a magazine, prints, etc.  The title 'professional' has the connotation that it should be the primary source of income.
