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.

I was never one to listen to my mother, and she told me I could never have a snake. I got a snake anyways, but my mom was by no means terrified of snakes. I knew my mom wouldn't do anything once it was already here because that's the way she is. I'm not necessarily condoning going against your parents, but sometimes it can be ok to.
If educating her doesn't work and she is *truly* phobic of snakes, you need to respect that.

If you mom is phobic of snakes i wouldnt sneak one in, this can cause problems. I would suggest maybe get another type of reptiles and not get a snake, maybe when you mov eout?
