Ummm..pick a side, any side :roll:rattusnorvegicus said:females are much, MUCH better rats for begginers. rats also need to be bred in heat, but it will not lead to fatal injury. the breeding just won't work if the female rat is in heat :roll:. very good question, carol . ive never had the experience of having a male rat; i have only had females as pets. but i do know, like most ratlovers do, female rats are better pets for begginer rat owners. good luck with your new ratties, im so exited for you .
EDIT -not that male rats aren't good pets :wink:.
