Chester and Terri interview reptile expert Andy Maddox of Pets-a-Plenty: The Ultimate Reptile Shop. They discuss the shocking intelligence of king cobras along with other facts about these iconic serpents. If you like snakes or if they just plain freak you out, do not miss this episode.
Being born with a deep interest in animals might seem unfortunate for a native Bronxite , but my family encouraged my interest and the menagerie that sprung from it. Jobs with pet stores and importers had me caring for a fantastic assortment of reptiles and amphibians. After a detour as a lawyer, I was hired as a Bronx Zoo animal keeper and was soon caring for gharials, goliath frogs, king cobras and everything in-between. Research has taken me in pursuit of anacondas, Orinoco crocodiles and other animals in locales ranging from Venezuela’s llanos to Tortuguero’s beaches. Now, after 20+ years with the Bronx Zoo, I am a consultant for several zoos and museums. I have spent time in Japan, and often exchange ideas with zoologists there. I have written books on salamanders, geckos and other “herps”, discussed reptile-keeping on television and presented papers at conferences. A Master’s Degree in biology has led to teaching opportunities. My work puts me in contact with thousands of hobbyists keeping an array of pets.

Jonathan started keeping herps at 13, rapidly filling his parents house with banks of enclosures. He became interested in elapids and after harassing virtually every elapid keeper in QLD, his enthusiasm landed him a job at Venom Supplies in South Australia straight after he graduated high school. He worked with a host of species, from spitting cobras to pygmy copperheads, but mainly concentrated on a collection of 160 Coastal Taipans. A few years later an opportunity arose in QLD to purchase Educational Reptile Displays, the first on Jonathans forays into the business world. ERD is now a thriving education company, and one of few that does not perform birthday parties or school demonstrations – they strictly supply formal education to corporate clients, particularly in the safe and ethical handling of elapids. In 2009, Jonathan purchased Mike Swan Herp Books – Australia's largest bookstore specialising in reptile titles from throughout the world. Herp Books has around 300 titles in stock at any one time and travel to most of the reptile trade expos. Jonathan's main business interest was started in 2011 – Fauna Solutions. FS provides a host of fauna and environmental management work, particularly with reptiles in QLD's brigalow belt.
American Heroes Radio features a conversation with former United States Marine Corps Major Dan Sheehan, the author of After Action: The True Story of a Cobra Pilot’s Journey.
Major Dan Sheehan, USMC, “served as a Marine Officer from 1996 to 2007. He is an AH-1W pilot by trade and deployed aboard the 13th MEU (SOC) in 2000 and the 11th MEU (SOC) in 2002. During those deployments he participated in operations in East Timor, Yemen, and in various countries in the Middle East. In 2003, he flew close air support missions during the invasion of Iraq & in 2004 served in Baghdad as a Forward Air Controller with USMC Special Operations Command. When he left active duty as a Major in 2007, he had accrued more than 2000 flight hours and over 30 free-fall and static line parachute jumps.” Major Sheehan is the author of After Action: The True Story of a Cobra Pilot's Journey. According to the book description of After Action: The True Story of a Cobra Pilot's Journey, “as a 3rd generation military flyer, he was eager to test his skills as a Cobra gunship pilot in the theatre of combat & then he got his chance, first, in East Timor, then during 2 tours of duty in Iraq.
The scenes in this, Dan’s military memoir, crackle with angst and excitement as we follow his path into battle. Bullets pierce the unarmoured Cobras as Dan and his buddies struggle to separate enemy fighters from civilians. Through the smoke of battle and chaos of firefights at night, Dan puts us in right in the front seat of the Cobra - where we white-knuckle our way through barrages of enemy fire - and into his head as he makes split-second decisions that determine life or death."
