Chimpanzes are legal in Alaska...

Thats stupid...chimps shouldn't be kept as pets...period!

I don't think rats are illegal in Alaska.I know a girl there who has 3 pet rats and she says the pet stores around her always have rats!

I see you are from there...you sure they are illegal?

Rats are illegal in Alberta.

Thats very odd about the chimps. I don't know much about exotic animal laws but I didn't know that they were legal anywhere.

Rats are illegal in Anchorage (biggest city, where I am) and many other cities. Only place I have seen them is about 50 miles out of town, and there you are only allowed to sell albinos. They aren't illegal everywhere, which is even more stupid.

Where does your friend live?

Maybe you just need a permit to own one? Some states are like that.

Oh no, they are having them at the pet store then so that they can be used as feeders for huge snakes? I think they should outlaw the snakes then!

Outlaw snakes? Because they eat smaller crtters?

I agree.Snakes need to eat too.I am not against feeder rats and mice,as long as they are taken care of before they are used as food.

I am against live feeding though....as that can be both dangerous and cruel for the snake AND the rat/mouse.

Very true.Live feeding can be quite dangerous.
