About Rob Carmichael
My Reptile Interests
My passion is in working with venomous reptiles as you'll see with some of the pics I'll be posting. BUT, my breeding background involved eastern indigo snakes and I have had a chance to speak at the Int'l Herp Symposium in Phoenix and had my presentation published in their proceedings. I've been keeping herps since I was 4 and now that I'm just a "little" older, the passion is still burning strong. Outside of herps, I have two dogs (rotties) and a kangaroo (no joke)
Other Interests
That's hard....I live in a house that's on the farm where my public wildlife facility is located - when I'm done at "work" I go home and care for my animals. BUT, I do enjoy bird watching, hiking, camping, kayaking/canoeing, squash/racquetball, watching baseball (I used to play professionally) and visting other zoos/wildlife facilities.
I used to play in a band (guitar) hair was much longer back then! Favorite bands: Rush, Pink Floyd, Zep, Clapton, I could reel off another 100.
Cheesy B-grade herp movies (ssssSSSS, Frogs, etc.). But, my wife doesn't share that same excitement so we watch the usual movies - action, suspense, etc. I don't really have much time to watch TV or movies so its pretty sporadic.
Curator/Herpetologist for the Wildlife Discovery Center. Still working on my PhD....I'll finish before I die.
Anything else?
Herps rule....for those wishing to make reptiles a career, don't let people tell you that you can't do it. My staff have all started their own side business that deal with herps and wildlife in general. I started this place with nothing more than a dream and an idea (and not a penny to my name). Now I manage an internationally acclaimed herp facility - not bragging - I take ZERO credit for this - that all goes to the man above.
