Are they legal to own in PA?
I've searched the web and checked the states info with no definite answer :shrug:
Thanks in advance!

No you need the exotic pet permit with two years experience for any mammal not domestic but PGC wont issue the permits for exotic animals only native.

“We do issue permits of certain types of exotic wildlife, but those typically include native wildlife species to Pennsylvania being held in captive facilities. These include black bears, mountain lions, coyotes, foxes, bobcats, turkeys, pheasants, that type of thing.” "“We never issued permits for them."(said of small pocket pet type exotics).Travis Lau, the press secretary for the Pennsylvania Game Commission
