10 Wild Animals That You Can Legally Keep As Pets



Chinchillas

Chinchillas are virtually harmless pets, and super easy to take care of. This is one unusual pet that doesn’t really have a downside and that is legal pretty much everywhere across North America.

Sloths

Because sloths are such lazy animals, they might seem like the perfect, low-maintenance pet. However, they are actually super difficult to care for because they have a very specific diet, sensitive stomachs, and almost no veterinarian knows how to care for a sloth. Furthermore, in order to legally have a sloth as a pet, you must purchase the sloth from a registered breeder. As you can imagine, there aren’t too many of those across.
