Question I want to own an exotic animal. Do I need a special permit?

Answer There are laws to protect endangered and threatened species and a special license needs to be obtained to keep one of these animals. Similarly, a special permit must be obtained to keep animals considered dangerous, such as alligators and bobcats.
