A lot of animals were banned from the united states. They're not allowed to be imported because of the monkey pox scare. If they are already here it's okay, but as far as I know, they're not even allowed to be bred.

But Kangaroo Rats wouldn't have to be imported 'cause they already live here .

I would think it would depend on your state whether they were legal or not. Either way you might need a permit.

I've actually seen them when I visit El Paso, Texas to see family .

I remember when I was little we would go to the zoo there and kangaroo rats would be running around...I found them to be the most interesting animals there, haha.
