These seven exotic pets are totally legal to own.
Dogs and cats are great, but for those people who like to be just a little bit different, here is some exciting news -- a number of exotic animals are actually legal to own, and they can also make great pets.
Sugar gliders, capybaras, and wallabies are just a few of the exotic creatures that you can legally welcome into your household.
Just imagine how fun it would be to have a sugar glider flying around your home!
As with choosing any pet, it is important to do your research and have a full understanding of their needs before bringing them home; a number of exotic pets are nocturnal, and many of them are social and need to live in a group.
But if you plan accordingly, you may end up with the best -- and coolest -- pet you've ever had.
