The racoon as long as it doesn't make any racist jokes.

The only real hinderance to your ability to ge treatment from the snake bite is your proximity from Australia.

I'd take the snake. Raccoons are freakin nuts as it is and a rabid one is just trouble. Outside of the obvious biting that both could do, the 'coon would tear apart your place. They are nosy little !@#$ and go through everything. They will steal shiny stuff and dig through your trash/pantry. I'm stuck in the boondocks and have had a raccoon in the house, they suck.

It's funny because it's true.

I'd take the 'coon coz it's easier to blast without collateral damage.

I'm used to snakes from my job, but racoons are mean ****ers. I threw a rock at one today and did some damage, so I'm guessing that means they are easier to kill. On that note, I pick the racoon.

Very tough decision, but I think I'll choose the Raccoon.

Although extremely venomous, there haven't been any *recorded* human fatalities from it, and the bite can be treated. The snake isn't particularily aggressive either.
You get bit by a raccoon you have quite a bit of time to get a shot before you actually catch rabies.

I dont know how this is even a question. We aren't talking about a grizzly bear. You can easily kick a raccoon out of the way this aint Monty Python.

And although no killings have been reported...

A single bite from the Inland Taipan contains enough venom to kill as many as 100 human adults
