About Mellisa Carey
My Reptile Interests
I've been keeping reptiles for between 15 and 17 years depending on how you want to look at it. I've been catching local herps for as long as I can remember and as a teenager started bringing them home. About 12 years ago I started getting really serious about it though. I've owned a pretty good variety but have narrowed my focus to BCC, BCI and Corn Snakes. I've also recently been getting really into other rat snakes. I also have a passion for rescuing animals. I've rescued dozens of herps over the last few years and have found it extremely rewarding.
Other Interests
Outside of reptiles I love all kinds of outdoorsy stuff. I've spent most of my life camping, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, rafting and so on. I also really love shooting and actually shot competitively for several years. I'm a very avid reader of all kinds of books, history, fiction, non-fiction...everything! Tattoos! I have 10 at the moment and want lots more! I'm working on designing a herp themed sleeve. :) I also like to make my hair funny/unnatural colors.
I like all kinds of music. I play several insruments and can read music pretty well. I listen to almost everything from classical and opera to punk and old school hip hop. However, my favorite band is The Offspring. Their lead singer is my man. ;)
I'm a big fan of horror movies. I loooove them. Kinda more than I probably should. Lol. But I also like a lot of sci-fi (I'm super nerdy) and a good amount of action. Not really a fan of all the romantic comedies that seem to be so popular right now but my friends keep trying to drag me to them.
I'm a cook/kitchen manager but I got laid off recently and haven't found a new job so I don't know if that still counts. I am in school though. Almost done with my first year. I'm working towards a BA in zoology right now and would eventually like at least a Masters but we'll see how that goes.
Anything else?
