I think this is a great topic and we all can learn much. Knowing the laws in your area is very important - I'll admit I haven't a clue what they are in my state. I will definitely dive into some research on this later on today.

Ferrets are legal to own as pets in NJ but they must be neutered/spayed and descented and have their first distemper shot before they are sold. When they are sold the buyer must list with the Exotic Wildlife and Game Board (I think thats the name) and purchase a permit for $10 a year.

If you own Birds you must purchase a permit for $20. It is only one fee and it covers all permitted animals. Since I have Birds I pay a fee of $20 a year and it covers All of my animals.

Here's a link to a site that shows you by state whether or not sugar gliders are legal/illegal or if you need to register them:

North America

And here's a few others:

State Laws Governing Private Possession of Exotic Animals

Summary of State Laws Relating to Private Possession of Exotic Animals

So far this is all I can find, I will keep searching: PIJAC

The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council began its operations in the United States on December 7, 1971. The intent at the time was to put together a concerted effort to defeat proposed changes to regulations affecting the transport of live animals. Twenty-five years later, the PIJAC acronym is recognized around the world as a leading authority for the pet industry in areas like education, information and advocacy.

Hi poss, a fellow BC ite

I know Sugar gliders ARE legal in BC.....

I dont see them illegalising chins anytime soon, but from what I can gather from Tortises PM, They were wanting to ban them on the island, am I correct Tort?

That would suck SO bad. they would have a fight in front of them, I happen to know there are ALOT of chinnie owners here on the isalnd, as well as some fur ranches, although they keep a pretty low profile, I haven't discovered one yet, but I KNOW their here SOMEWHERE!

Toirtis, do you know if when they say 24" length on a snake wether they mean a snake that has the ability to grow over that length. Or do they mean that is legal to have that snake until it is 24". Why I ask is in the news, yet again, there was an article of a man strangled by his snake. As the article went on they said about the snake being ten feet long and that it was illegal to own a snake over 6 feet. Not knowing much on the subject it just caught me as weird because apparently he had had it since it was tiny. The way it was written it sounded like he was allowed to own this snake till it was 6 feet then all of a sudden somehow either he has to get rid of his snake or make it stop growing. Just seemed strange
