    That’s good then ghoulgecko , experience is a really valuable tool in life at least you will be nicely prepared for when you eventually get your own, just keep up up the hard work which you definitely seem to be doing then your parents slowly may come around, sounds like your being really mature about I. Think that’s definitely the best way to win your parents round
    Good luck for 2018 , it may be your year

    Ghoulgecko and imported_tuatara don’t wish your life’s away it’s not always fun being an adult before you know it you will be over 40 and wonder where time went

    So if I understand you right, Ghoulgecko, your parents haven't given you a reason why you can't have a snake?
    The best thing you can do now is to back off, and drop the subject for a while. Keep reading and researching, and let them see that you are. Also, if they ask you what you want for your birthday, start asking for accessories and bits and pieces you will need when you do own a snake: hook, infrared temp gun, hides, etc. Don't ask for a snake, just the other things you need. They will see that you are serious, and maybe, just maybe, they will overcome their fears. Let them bring the subject up though.
    Good luck!

    they know i'm serious lol, don't think they're so stubborn that they think that years of asking for an animal is just a phase etc.

    i have done such before, except they'd just think it''d be for one of the monitors or geckos i want, as i'm much bigger into monitors, just monitors aren't as cheap unless a large species, sadly.
