Well, you might not like my answer....

You might just have to wait until you get your own house! I'm a mom and I have two girls, 13 and 11. I'll tell you, the more kids bug their parents for something, the more the parents get aggravated and the less likely they are to say, "Yes." You definitely don't want to pit your parents against each other, but your dad may be able to talk to your mom for you. My mom hates, hates, hates snakes and I never had any pets as a kid unless I just brought them home and snuck them into my room. I studied animals in college, work as a vet tech to pay for school, cared for horses and rats and worked in research at the U of Fl, and eventually studied in human health care. I didn't like working in the hospital, so I used my science background to become a science teacher and also homeschool my girls. We have 6 lizards, a gator, 10 snakes, frogs, bugs, and we use them in our family business to educate people about reptiles. So, I waited and then had all the pets I wanted!

My youngest has pet snakes and she also trains in classical ballet at our pre-professional ballet school. She's very lady-like. If you'd like to check us out, our website is www.zoomomscience.com
