WHAT states ARE HEDGIES ILLigLE/AGAINST THE LAw? not here in fl but i was rlly wondering what is the MAIN reason they are illigel in some states?
That seems to be the most common reason given but it's never made sense to me. Even in warm climates the temperature drops at night which could cause a hedgehog to die and how often do exotic pets escape and survive? And not only survive but find another escaped pet that survived and mate with it and have the babies survive and find others to mate with. Seems unlikely to happen with hedgehogs.SnufflePuff said:It actually explains why they're illegal on the page that xsarahjox's link takes you to.
But mostly they are illegal in places that the government fears they would be able to survive in the wild if they escaped. I guess they don't want them escaping and establishing their own wild hedgie populations...because well invading species are never a good thing for nature.
It's especially ridiculous to make ferrets illegal since they exist in the wild in many places anyways. :lol:LizardGirl said:Also seems unlikely that pet ferrets (which are all practically from Marshall's, fixed) would reproduce and form mobs of evil vicious ferrets in the streets. Yet so many states are paranoid about them. :roll:
