About David_ McConley
My Reptile Interests
I have 23 snakes, 1 lizard, 1 cat and 3 dogs. My herps are: 2.3 common boa constrictors, 2.4 normal ball pythons, 1.1 100% het pied ball pythons, 1.0 normal Burmese python, 0.1 albino Burmese python, 0.1 leucistic Texas rat snake, 1.0 creamsicle corn snake, 0.1 blood red corn snake, 0.1 w/c hypomelanistic corn snake, 1.0 white-lipped python, 0.1 blood python, 1.0 Taiwanese beauty snake, 1.0 mangrove snake (boiga dendrophila), and 1.0 Mali uromastyx. I have been keeping reptiles for about 5 years now and I am currently trying to get my herp room set up so I can get LOTS more snakes. I would love to start a breeding program with my mangrove snake and a gorgeous female mangrove snake. I don't have a lot of time to do field herping- the extent of my field herping is confined to helping tortoises off the highway and removing snakes from yards of people that have a deadly fear of them.
Other Interests
I love to spend time with my 3 year old son. He is like a category 5 hurricane when he is awake, and I would not want it any other way. I also spend a large amount of time at my local church where my wife and so and I are members. I am an artist and I am the art director and scene builder for our church. I also do reptile education programs in addition to running a reptile rescue/removal and rehab out of my home.
Music
My favorite bands are AC/DC, Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Foreigner, Billy Joel, and many of the greats from the 60's, 70's and early 80's. I do not play and I haver absolutely no idea how to podcast. I am willing to learn if someone is willing to tutor me.
Movies
I am a huge fan of the original Planet of the Apes movies, the Jurassic Park movies, Rocky, First Blood, The Piunk Panther movies (with Peter Sellers), and any movie with John Wayne is a winner in my opinion. Favorite actors and actresses: John Wayne, Clint Eastwood,Laura Dern, Peter Sellers, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Cher.
Professional
I am currently in school to get my Associates in Graphic Arts, I have a Bachelor's degree in Herpetology, I am a Certified Life Coach, and I do educational programs about reptiles at local community colleges, churches and daycares. In addition to this, I run a full time reptilerescue/rehabilitation and removal service. I am also attempting to open a specialty store offering reptile and religious relatexd objects for Christians, herpers and Christian herpers- this will ultimately lead into ownership of a reptile specialty pet shop. One of my long term goals would be to open a 250 acre refuge for Burmese pythons caught in the Everglades. This refuge would house these magnificent snakes ans give them a safe environment for the remainder of their lives. I would also like to have a rattery and a place for rabbits so I can be totally self sufficient after the initial grants from the Government to set it up and fence it in.
