Between a guinea pig and a rat which is a easier more fun/ cuddly pet?
According to http://exoticpets.about.com/cs/resourcesgeneral/a/choosearodent.htm , they are both easy to handle and have good temperaments. The guinea pig, however, usually lives longer than a rat would.
I think a rat is much more friendly. They are extremly intelligent, easy to train, and they like to snuggle!
In my opinion, a rat is a better pet than a guinea pig. It is easier to care for and it can be more fun to play with. It is an intelligent animal and it learns from you.
I think a guinea pig is better, but that's my opinion. Rats scare me, lol. No offence to rat lovers...
