Richardson's Ground Squirrel

Does anyone know if these ground squirrels are legal in New York? I can't seem to find any information. I thought all squirrels were illegal but then again I thought the same for opossums and it turns out you can have short-tailed opossums.

I always wanted one but thought they were probably illegal since no one seems to have them here.

If they are legal I'm totally saving up for one .

This pet store in New York sells them :http://www.thereptileco.com/ .
So I take that to mean it is not illegal, lol.

That's true, thanks .

Though now I don't know if I can get one...my mom says it's cruel to ship animals.

Are you too far away to actually go to the store?
I just had my chipmunk shipped and he was fine when I picked him up. Good luck with getting one, they are definitely cute!

Well, I had wanted to have one shipped from S&S Exotics as I couldn't find any here .

And I checked the link you gave me and they are too far away as well...about three hours. I doubt my parents would drive me that far. It seems like a cool store, though, I wish I could visit!

Just a reminder... that a petstore sells it may not mean that they are legal... petstores care about the money... and well.. let's say that leopard geckos are ilegal, yet I got mine from a petstore... I've seen green iguanas, sun conures, RES turtles, sugar gliders, spotted newts, pacman frogs and cornsnakes in stores here and they are all ilegal.. not to mention the tarantulas and ferrets that I were offered by the manager of the petstore I frequent...

PS, don't worry about my ilegal animals, they do have a vet, who is my prof. and he works with exotics and he's the one that goes and sees all the ilegals around... he even has a RES turtle in his vet office... lol

I realize that and I would definately find out for sure before getting one. New York isn't too strict...we can have alot of exotics here .
