  • I would own either, but I grew up owning rats. They make great pets - especially for kids. Pretty darn easy to care for too. It depends a lot on what kind of snake, hard to say on that without knowing the kind. I vote rat.

  • I hear rats are good pets, but the last encounter I had with a rat was when one was in the kitchen at the old apartment I lived in so I get creeped out. Maybe a snake. That's a tough one.
