Thanks guys.

She was only 8 months old and appeared to be in perfect health, shedding normally, good appetite and regular pooping. The only thing I would say was a bit odd was that she never tamed down. She was always ready to bite and would even strike at you through the box and she had a wicked tail rattle.
