Just a little tip if you do finally get a snake with her reluctant blessings.

Let her see it regularly, even if just a glimpse. Because if she goes 6 months without seeing it and it's doubled in size, her paranoia/phobia about it turning into a giant man-eating monster animal may get the better of her. If she doesn't really notice it growing in size it will make it easier on her (and you) in the long run, until she gets used to the idea of a snake in the house.
