How to convince parents to get me a hedgehog?

Over the past 2 years I have kept exotic pets that my parents bought for me or that I had caught. Some pets are a tarantula and 3 ant colony that I've raised myself. I have enough money to buy a hedgehog and I know a breeder. I have cat kibble that I will feed it and I have money to buy it. I have a Tupperware container to house it in and I'm going to purchase a wheel. But I'm pretty sure they will say no. I have proven myself responsible to them by now I think. I've already asked a year ago and they said no. What points can I bring up to them to help my case? I have done much research and I even got my English teacher, who has a hedgehog give me some pointer on how to take care of one.

They let you keep tarantulas but not a hedgehog? Gosh, ok.
My mom allowed me to get a hedgehog after I told them they are silent, they aren't rodents, they don't stink and they don't carry diseases. That's all my mom took to say yes. I'm not sure how determined your parents are, sorry if I didn't help that much. 馃槄
From what do they smell? My hedgehog doesn't smell at all. If anything, he smells like vanilla... For some reason...
