Anyone have any ideas how to convince my parents to let me get a snake?? lol, I'm desperate. I want to get a BP so badly, but my mom is SO scared of anything living (except humans and *some* dogs)! I can care for it, and my dad is cool with it. But it's just my mom... when I come back from the Expo, I say to her that I touched a snake and then I tap her shoulder, and I swear that she was almost ready to ground me.
