 Getting a JCP this weekend

So I’m now SUPER excited!!!!!! After waiting and begging for over a year, my parents have given in. They say I have to give up my ball python, but I don’t have room for both anyway. There’s a really dependable exotic pet store about two hours from where I live. I’ve already called them, and they say that they’ll take the ball python for some credit towards the carpet python. This weekend I’m driving out there and picking up the young jcp that I have on hold. I have a ten gallon and a fifty gallon. Not sure which one I’ll put him in first. It will depend on how big he is. But yeah, can’t wait for this weekend!!!!!!!!

Good luck with the new snake. Hope you don’t regret it. Ball pythons are the best snakes for handling.

I don’t regret getting the little guy at all. Although he was a little nippy at first, I left him alone for a few days, then began to gently handle him and, little by little, he got better. Now he’s fine with handling, just a little head shy. The guy told me that he’s still fairly young, eating an adult mouse once a week (frozen/thawed). I named him Mercutio, after my favorite Shakespeare character. Here are some pics.
