Well, maybe you guys can offer some advice here... I currently keep 2 garter snakes, a 2.5-3 ft female and a 2 ft male. Originally when we moved out I was told no snakes, I kept a few lizards and not much else in terms of herps. I caught one garter at a friends house and was aloud to keep it outside but it eventually escaped the pail and got away. 3 years ago I managed to persuade them to let me catch a garter using the " You let me keep tons of them as a kid, why not now? " I had the female I currently own and a baby. The baby passed away and earlier this year I convinced them to let me get a friend for my female. I caught the male. I've provided all the care for these snakes, Payed for every thing including building a 200$ cage for the female garter and paying 10$ a week for food for her. I currently also have a 20 gallon tank with a few fish, an aquatic frog in a 10 gallon (african clawed frog) and a betta. I'm interested in keeping an indigo or a bullsnake, but my parents aren't fond of me having another snake, espcially one that is a bit larger then little garters. My mom was raised in a house where she was taught to hate pets and she never had any. My dad's siblings had tons of exotic things but never much himself. So I've cared for my snakes flawlessly and my other pets for years. I've asked and they say " you have garters you don't need more ". Suggestions?
