Hey! I've been researching different snakes, and was considering either a garter snake or ball python, and decided a ball python sounds like a better option- and a lot easier to get. At my school, there are three ball pythons that I've been handling to see if I like holding them, and I enjoy it a lot. I've put together a list of supplies I need to get for a ball python, and know where I'd put it to keep it in a calm environment, without too much traffic besides me, and I'm confident I'd be able to care for one.
The only issue is convincing my mom to let me get one... I know my father would be alright with it, but my mother is the real issue. Are there any tips anyone has that would be helpful in convincing her? If anyone has any advice, please respond!
