Best thing to do now is to tell her, and also that there was now way to avoid that.
Reptiles are not pets. My brother had a "pet" snake growing up, and I can't even count the number of times I wish I could have run over that evil fucker with a lawnmower. The snake, not the brother. Although my brother was pretty evil too. Fuck reptiles.
Any animal you keep in your house, feed, and let's you pet/hold it and maybe even play with, is a pet. They're not always domesticated but it still counts. There is always personality variation too. For example, no one would doubt me saying I had a hamster for a pet, even though it would always bite me if I got near it (though that's because it's nocturnal and I could only be around it during the day and it never adjusted to that).
For people who want to say YDI - would you check in a lawnmower for reptiles before starting it on a normal day? I hope your sister manages well OP
