It should come as no surprise that most all exotic animals are regulated by the Department of Conservation but it may come as a surprise that several animals you probably wouldn't be allowed to be owned as pets actually are!
Several animals are illegal to own in more states than they are legal and among those animals are animals that belong to the families of bears, primates, big cats, canids (jackal, wolf, fox, etc.), and venomous and large reptiles (crocodilians, large constrictor snakes, large monitor lizards, etc.).
If the thought of owning a dog or a cat or a parakeet sounds nice and all but you’re looking for an animal that’s a little more exotic to call yourself the owner of, there are five absolutely adorable and exotic animals that appear to be completely legal to own in Upstate New York, although you might want to check your local ordinance laws to be absolutely sure.
