5 Wild Animals That You Can Legally Keep As Pets

Owning a pet is something that many people do, or want to do, within their lifetime. Pets are loving companions, can reduce stress, and can get people involved in physical activity or social situations. Most people choose pets like dogs, cats, hamsters, or fish, as these are easy pets to attain and do not require a whole lot of maintenance. There are quite a few different animals that most people don’t realize they could have as a pet if they wanted to, and are completely legal. However, just because something is legal, doesn’t mean that people should do it.

5. Otters
Otters are legal pets in most states, as long as you have a body of water for them to exercise in nearby. Otters are undeniably adorable animals. However, they have a curious and destructive nature, so they will ruin a lot of things in your home if you choose to take one as a pet.

4. Sloths
Because sloths are such lazy animals, they might seem like the perfect, low-maintenance pet. However, they are actually super difficult to care for because they have a very specific diet, sensitive stomachs, and almost no veterinarian knows how to care for a sloth. Furthermore, in order to legally have a sloth as a pet, you must purchase the sloth from a registered breeder. As you can imagine, there aren’t too many of those across.

3. Servals
Serval cats are similar to leopards, and are incredibly hard to tame. That doesn’t mean that aren’t affectionate; they are just unpredictable. Most states in the U.S. have differing laws about servals, but it is legal in many states, as long as all of the regulations are followed.

2. Monkeys
Specifically, squirrel monkeys are legal to own as a pet in some states. Many states are beginning to outlaw ownership of primates though, because they can be unpredictable. However, they are slightly disgusting. For example, they often pee on their own hands and feet, so that they leave their scent wherever they go.

1. Chinchillas
Chinchillas are virtually harmless pets, and super easy to take care of. This is one unusual pet that doesn’t really have a downside and that is legal pretty much everywhere across North America.
