And it's a really bad one. It appears to include all in the order listed unless otherwise stated and the ones listed are just examples.

(2) 'Exotic animal' means those species of animals that are inherently dangerous to humans. Exotic animals include, but are not limited to, the following orders and families, whether bred in the wild or in captivity, and any or all hybrids. The animals listed in parentheses are intended to act as examples and are not to be construed as an exhaustive list or limit the generality of each group of animals, unless otherwise specified:

(a) class mammalia:

(i) order artiodactyla (hippopotamuses, giraffes, camels, and deer but not cattle, swine, sheep, or goats);

(ii) order carnivora:

A. family felidae (lions, tigers, cougars, leopards, ocelots, and servals but not domestic cats);

B. family canidae (wolves, coyotes, foxes, and jackals but not domestic dogs);

C. family ursidae (all bears);

D. family mustelidae (martins and minks but not ferrets, weasels, or skunks);

E. family procyonidae (raccoons and coatis);

F. family hyaenidae (hyenas);

G. family viverridae (civets, genets, and mongooses);

(iii) order edentatia (anteaters, armadillos, and sloths);

(iv) order marsupialia (opossums, kangaroos, and wallabies but not sugar gliders);

(v) order perissodactyla (rhinoceroses and tapirs but not horses, donkeys, or mules);

(vi) order primates (lemurs, monkeys, chimpanzees, and gorillas);

(vii) order proboscidae (elephants);

(viii) order rodentia (beavers and porcupines but not guinea pigs, squirrels, rats, mice, gerbils, or hamsters);

(b) All species listed under the Federal Endangered Species Act as threatened or endangered are considered exotic animals.

(c) Species not listed may be declared as exotic animals by the department if the confinement of the animal within the State can be shown to constitute a threat to public health and safety.

(3) 'Person' means an individual, partnership, corporation, organization, trade or professional association, firm, limited liability company, joint venture, association, trust, estate or any other legal entity and any officer, member, shareholder, director, employee, agent, or representative of these.
