I've got a little bit of a struggle. Im a pretty small reptile owner only owning 2 bearded dragons. I also have a fish tank, however some of my siblings who live in the house think I already have enough pets. Some of them don't mind snakes whilst 1 hates them. However, their main excuse for why I shouldn't be allowed to own a corn snake is because I don't need one, or what would happen if I wanted to go on holiday. The second is easily answered, being that I prefer to stay at home rather than go out on holiday. My father thinks it's fine for me to stay at home and take care of my beardies whilst the rest of the family apart from 2 are away. However I've been trying to explain to the ones who don't want me to get one that I have enough money, space, time etc to take care of another pet, being a corn snake which I love due to their docile nature and cute and small looks. However they keep coming back with the fact that I don't need one and therefore I shouldn't get one. It's really frustrating because all I can respond with is either, yes but I really want one or that they don't need but want a lot of things. Please suggest some ways to make them reconsider or at least get them off my back. It's really annoying whenever I try to talk to my father about it and they overhear and argue with me about it. Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
