cruelty

I think it is cruel when my parents say no more snakes i mean i only have two and they don't get very big, but i keep trying to get that one more snake. Because i need another snake they just don't understand........ Yet! Its so anoying how people who don't have snakes ask you why you want another snake, their are just to many reasons to list. If snakes are a religion then my parents are aparently non belivers!

i dont think so. i thihnk you should be happy you have one. If they said yes, most kids would have too many to care for. And i dont really think anyone needs another snake, its just nice to have them. Im happy with my three now, and wont get anymore until college. If anything I may get a leo but then that would be it.

I don't know how old you are, but if you are still living with your parents, that is just the way it goes. It is their house, after all. When you move out and buy your own house and are paying all the bills and supplying all the groceries, clothes, etc, then you can have all the snakes you want. (see where I am going with this?). I have 4 kids, and I am constantly being asked for this, that and the other thing. Of course, the things they want this week are completely different from what they wanted last week.

So, just be grateful that your parents have allowed you to have the pets you do. Most parents would not have let you have ANY snakes!

Don't worry about it, man. It's an addiction! My parents told me I couldn't have any more reptiles after my third snake, and look at me now... I have 5 and I'm getting 2 more within the next 2 weeks ! A little while ago my mom told me I couldn't have any over 5' long, hahaha. But I got my burm after that rule was made! It's really funny, actually... I'm sure you'll be okay with a little convincing, and if begging works go for that approach . Good luck

RachelS you are a bad girl! But that is so funny!

Fateamber don't worry about it I'm now 27 and my mom still doesn't understand. Of course you could claim your new love for Scorpions and leave a few computer print outs around. Snakes might not seem that bad. But you didn't hear it from me.

Gibbon rules. He's definately the next in line for England's keeper.

Just wait until you're on your own...I went from one snake to eight within a year, and five more (plus one Pug) are coming this summer!

I spent the first almost 15 years of my herp addiction having all my herps live with Grandpa because my family just didn't get it. I had mice, gerbils, and fish at home but no frogs, snakes or lizards were allowed.

Then I got married and hubby didn't want any snakes or lizards, and just put up with my frogs because I was paid by the vet hospital to rehab them at home. I didn't keep any personal pet herps the whole time I was married.

So believe me, I know how frustrating family can be when they come between you and your herp addiction. Be careful that you don't go nuts when you are out on your own as it's very easy to do and you end up with scaly friends everywhere you look while all your clothes are years out of style.

My parents gave me no reson why i can't have any more snakes they just keep saying "no more snakes in this house" (they keep trying to convince me to move house, but then my dad says i would have to keep them outside if we moved house and i don't want to do that), its really quite strange when they were the ones who sugested i get a snake in the first place.

Haha it sounds to me like your parents created a monster of a problem by suggesting something to occupy you that was really a passion in disguise

I hope all works out and that while you live with them that you can work together to mainatin some level of herp sanity!
