That's nutts, how could they be so irresponsible as to not let her know that they had a snake in the house! And it doesn't mention what type of snake it was, maybe it was a milk snake and she thought it was a coral. lol, you never know, maybe it was a retic and scared the crap out of her since she obviously knows very little to nothing about snakes. It's upsetting about the snake but I'm sure the girl feels bad enought without the idiot parents condeming her and casting her out of their home. I feel sorry for the girl, hope it makes her do some research and taught her a lesson.
Herps are like pringles, you can't stop at just one.
'believe me I know!!'
