|I completely and utterly disagree with feeding live animals to snakes. I own snakes and find it completely cruel to both ends to feed live. And dangerous too. I'll only feed frozen/thawed, and even then, I still feel terrible for the rodents, because I absolutely love all animals.
That said... Even though I own snakes, if it were legal where I live, I would absolutely own pet rats. My cousin in another Province owns rats and has all her life and they're such sweet, tame creatures and sooo smart too! Unfortunately, not only are live rats illegal and banned here(which makes it difficult for reptile owners to get live rats for their snakes!), but there is basically a team of people who will go out, investigate claims of rat sightings, and exterminate them if they're alive. I know for a fact that a rat or two has been spotted on my moms farm and various other farms around in the country, but if the province finds out, they go out and have them killed. It depresses me.
