Hello Everyone!

So my boyfriend and I recently moved into a new house and we're expanding our reptile collection. So far we have 2 Leopard Geckos, 2 Chinese Water Dragons, 2 Brown Anoles and their 2 babies (I need to separate them before I'm run over with Anoles!), 1 Ornery Tokay Gecko, 1 Ball Python and 1 Brazilian Rainbow Boa. Our garage is insulated and is heated so I'm building some cages to house my snakes in the garage. Once cage is going to have 6 different sections and will house my Ball Pythons and Brazilian Rainbow Boa's. But I am also very interested in getting a pair of Jungle Carpet Pythons.

I've done some research and so far it seems like a lot of people keep pairs of these snakes together year round. Does anyone have any opinion on this? I'm thinking of building a cage that would be 4x2x5 for a pair of Jungle Carpet Pythons. Would this be large enough for a pair? What initially sparked my interest in these gorgeous snakes is a pair of them at my local reptile store. The owner is asking $500 for the pair, they look to be about 4-5ft long and in good health. But I think $500 is out of my price range at the moment. I looked around on the classified here and the price range seems to very dramatically. I've seen some 09 babies for $125 and then some for $450. What would you consider to be a good price for a quality pair of Jungle's? Also is there any way to be sure I'm getting a pure Jungle Carpet Python and not one that's been mixed with Diamond's or other species?

Sorry for the long post. I really appreciate any input!
