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.

It depends on your parents.
For me, I just showed my mom how much I knew about them and kept showing my mom pictures and videos of cute hedgehogs, and for my dad, I assured him that they were not rodents and made a PowerPoint presentation on hedgehogs and why I should get one. What I’d recommend is show your parents how much you know about them (pictures and videos would help) and make sure they know how much you want one. Also remind them of how well you took care of your other pets. It may take time to convince your parents to let you get a hedgehog, but once you have one, you’ll realize it was very much worth the wait.

Good luck!!!!!
i hope it will work for me so thanks for the edvise
