New Hampshire

For a list of state regulations. Always contact your state department to verify legality! We do not make claims to this list being accurate though we strive for it to be. Changes in laws happen more frequently than we can keep up with and your regulators may interpret the law differently than we did.

Summary of Law: It is unlawful for persons to possess exotic animals unless they are exhibitors. However, there are certain noncontrolled animals that may be privately possessed within the state without a license.

It is illegal for anyone to possess, import, exhibit, sell or release any exotic animal, including live marine species or wildlife and their progeny or eggs without a permit issued by the executive director. There are six types of permits, an individual person permit, a propagator permit, an individual training and shooting permit, a shooting area permit, an exhibitor permit and an aquaculturist permit.

Their list of controled species however have a numeric code for who can get permits. Fennecs and gray foxes. for example at 5 which means exhibitors.
