What would you choose?

okay so my birthday is coming up in august and my parents have approached me and gave me a choice of any "cageable pet" (which ive wanted for like ever) so i instantly think rats.... or lizards.. iv had both in the past and i loved em both,im 14 and i love my animals and i like taking care of them!! but i cant decide because so many pros and cons for both theses choices, so i thought i come here for some encouragement and advice as to regards my choice... so from your personal opinion what would some of you choose?

Awww! I would get a rat! They're way more snuggly and fun to play with - and in my opinion, easier to care for (and have others care for when you go on vacation)! I like lizards, too - but *I* would go for a rat!

I would get a lizard, I think they are totally way more epic then rats. I like both, but a lizards seems more like something to show off, and i think more people are squeamish around rats then lizards.

haha this is why its hard to choose! i like rats cause theyre cool to interact with and play + theyre smart and trainable... but then the do tend to smell and yes people haaaaatte them but i dont get it, theyre not vermin that have rabies, like i understand why someone would see snakes or worms gross because of their movement and attitude, but rats can be so cute :P and lizards are things to show off excactly! there is still some people that are scared but they come around, you cant really "play" with lizards but having a terrarium nicely designed can be really amusing and just watching them feed can be satisfying! im really at a terrible stalemate here :P

I vote rats. It's nice to have something you can hug.
I find for quite a few people, the novelty of reptiles wears off really fast, they are pretty boring to the general public.
