Aw, I'm sorry you only had her for 4 months. ):
I hope you can convince your parents to let you get another one some day. Fish and reptiles don't even compare to each other though! xD I used to have a lot of bettas, but as they died I moved onto reptiles. I only have 1 betta now, but I wouldn't mind another one xD lol
If I keep bugging my mom I bet she'll say yes. lol. Thats what happened with all my other pets. She doesn't care how many lizards I get, just no snakes! lol! But soon SOON!
Haha, I would sneak one if I could, but mom is my main source of transportation, and I can't sneak anything by her!
I completely agree with you. Snakes are just like dogs in the sense that if treated poorly they will be aggressive. But if taken care of from a young age they are not aggressive. My mom doesn't want a snake in part because when her brother was a teenager he got bit by a friend's snake, and he almost lost his arm to blood poisoning, because the snake had just eaten a mouse and he got bacteria or something from it. My mom does agree with me though that it wasn't the snake's fault, it was my uncle's (he was drunk, and was handling a snake right after it had eaten). But the worry is still there for her I think. BUT I am slowly wearing her down, I think she will agree pretty soon. lol
