Well, at four years of age, I doubt your juvi grey rat is a juvie anymore!!! If it is still juvi sized then you may need to feed it more. Sorry to sound like a parent LOL!!

I am quite a bit older than you and now have kids of my own. They do not get every animal they want unless they show they are responsible taking care of it. But I remember the days living at home and keeping herps. Back then I caught most of what I kept, so "secretly" added to the collection when something new was captured. My mom thought it was crazy to actually pay good money for a snake LOL!!

If you are truly taking good care of your snake, then your mom shouldnt have a problem with you adding another. If you know the sex of your snake, you could possibly get your mom to let you get a mate and try breeding. It is a cool experience and educational. It shows you can accomplish something pretty cool.
