Found this gem at the local show!

Was at the Hamburg Pennsylvania show this past weekend. Got there early and flew through right away looking for gems. I almost always find one. Then I saw her and I couldn't get my money out fast enough. I was looking for something with looks for the display cage and I found her. The only downside is I have zero history on her. So I don't know her age or anything but she will be a family pet so no worries. He claimed she would only eat live and he got her in a trade for money owed.

Her second day she pounded three F/T rat crawlers and is dog tame. Still has a couple spots of stuck sheds but overall I think she is a looker. I bred JCPs 20 years ago with great success and hadn't had one since then. She just tugged at the right heart strings I guess.

Crappy cell pics, I will get more once she settles in.

I'm am pretty sure she is a mixed breed JCP but I honestly don't care. No breeding plans. Just a new friend to spoil.

Very nice carpet. There's nothing like Morelia imo.
