There is only one kind of rat...but as mentioned,tons of varieties.
There is no difference between the varieties,so it is personal choice on whether you want a white or blue or hooded or dumbo...however some varieties are harder to find/get then others and for some varieties,you need to go to a GOOD breeder.
AVOID pine or cedar litter.These are toxic to rats and other small animals.Aspen,Carefresh,Yesterdays News,hemp...etc,etc are safe litters to use.I use aspen personally,sometimes mixed with YN and shredded paper.
They need toys and out of cage time and have some money put aside in case they need a vet visit....rats are prone to RI (respiratory illness) and females are prone to tumors,so you will need some money set aside just for the vet.
