Aside from dogs, cats and fish, pet owners now want something more, something unique to help them stand out from others. When some hear “exotic” they think wild and dangerous. Exotic actually refers to a species that is not native or indigenous to the owner’s location.
In the United States, almost all animals are legal to have as a pet, however, due to injuries, danger of extinction, escapes, and health concerns, each state has its own laws in regards to which exotic animals you can own. States like Vermont, California, and New Hampshire ban exotic animals, so if you’re living in the United States make sure to check the animal law before getting one.
Below is a list of 10 adorable animals that you can legally have as exotic pets.
From the Kangaroo family, a Wallaby can grow up to 41 inches and weigh close to 53 pounds. They love the outdoors and are extremely social. Many feel that Wallabies make excellent exotic pets because they are kept outdoors, and are considered cute and fuzzy. They aren’t your typical outside pet, whereas a normal backyard isn’t going to cut it for a Wallaby. They need lots of outdoor room, as they move around at high speeds, and should be kept in a pen with shelter.
