Well I Did It, Not What I Planned On, but a Carpet None the Less :)

    As some of you know, I planned on picking up a juvenile JCP this weekend at a show, although things soon changed when I held this beautiful girl in my arms... There were only a few carpets at the show, only one jungle, priced at $600....
    I fell in love with her as soon as she was in my arms! So sweet, even while being harassed and poked at by the hundreds of show go'ers. The owner didn't normally have Carpets, she got this one from a friend and was letting her go cheap as she was low on space. I got her for $120.

    She's a 5 year old Diamond, right around 7' long (my best measurement anyways).

    As I was preparing for a <3' jungle, my cage is severally under size! But she will only have to deal with it for a couple days, as I will be building her a custom one.
    I picked her up a medium rat on the way home, planning to feed in a couple days, but when I got home put her in the cage, and took the rat out to put it in its cage, she lit up! I offered, and she took it, within 5 minutes of being home!
    I plan on leaving her completely alone for the next week! Only reason I will touch her will be to move her to her new house.

    Great looking pick-up! She is a beautiful girl and congratulations on getting her to eat so quickly. Glad to hear you are going to leave her alone for a time to let her settle in. Good luck on the new cage construction.

    Thanks! I'll always share pictures, I'm a bit of a picture *****...

    Thanks! I was very excited to have her eat so quickly, it will be hard to leave her alone, but necessary.
    I'll be posting all updates on the new enclosure as well.

    And Scarlett digesting her fresh meal, notice the rather large rat shaped bulge :)
