I am sort of caught in the same situation as you are. Im 13. I want a ball python REALLY REALLY REALLY bad, but my stuborn, ignorant of my interests, scared to death of snakes parents won't let me get one either. Idiotic, right? I think the reason my parents are being such wooses is because my brother had a snake once. And it got out of its so called secured cage. It was slithering up around my parents bed at 3am in the morning. Proove to your parents that you're responsible enough. And say "Mom,Dad look. Snakes are one of the easiest pets to take care of. You won't ever see it. I'll take care of it. Just pretend it's not here. Parents put their feet down in stupid places. Hope I helped.

ANSWER #7 of 7

ok so if this is helpful, please funmail me! well, first I hope you understand the responsibility of caring for an animal like a snake. after you are still sure you want one, try to come up with a arguement. like: "I really want a snake! I think they are great and fun"(or whatever you think they are)! "I know you think they will be harmful and hard to take care of, I understand why. but I don't want a big one, a small one, so it will be easier to take care of. also, we can ask the employees of"(whatever pet store) "to see which snakes are not harmful. we will get a cage that will be sturdy and so the snake will NEVER come out, unless we/I take it out to hold it. I understand that you NEVER want it slithering around the house, so I promise you I will NEVER put it down, I will only take it out to hold it then put it back." I really hope this helps and remember, funmail me after you read this and tell me what you think about it and if it works!!! bye! :D
