I know that hamsters,rabbits,snakes,dogs,cats,chinchillas, ALL the common animals are common in California, but in California you can't own a ferret,hedgehog,and some type of ferret, I'm pretty sure you can't own more too! You are somewhat right but you can own a polecat in California. (skunk) Which is sometimes considered a ferret! Fish are legal too.
No. To my knowledge no exotic large cats are legal. You can check with the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound in Rosamond California. A serval who was privately owned by a zoo employee in California and was confiscated because it was illegal to own them. The serval ended up at the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound.
