  • our state doesn't allow non-indegenous animal pets. I hope for your sake you find out if yours does before you get one

  • I know someone who had one. It lived in a cage in the back of a auto parts/body repair shop. You couldn't really pet it because it would bite, and it would eat its own feces. Of course, there are dogs that do that, too, so I guess you can't factor the whole eating crap thing into the equation. As far as the biting, it could have been a result of not being cared for properly, or it could simply be because it is a wild animal.

  • oh they are cute but i would hate to see it caged up. do you have big space set up like a whole yard with trees to climb, water to play in and dirt to roll in? also a companion to play with? have you ever watched fatal attraction on animal planet about people who had wild animals and their obsessions with them. some had monkeys, others venemous snakes, repitiles, big cats etc. in the end it's never a good idea to keep a wild animal. they can never truly be trusted. instincts are just that. they can't alter their instincts.
