Portrait of Misty

Misty was a wildlife biologist for Edwards Air Force Base. She was there almost a decade. She studied for her Bachelor’s in wildlife management and zoology at Humboldt State University and her master’s degree at California State University Bakersfield in biology.

In this portrait, Misty was holding Jerry, a king snake. He had natural immunity to the venom of rattlesnakes so he could eat rattlesnakes.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
