What wiled animals can you keep as pets?
In Animal Life
first of all, its spelled wild. second, there are plenty of wild animals that you can have as pets. some of them are banned in certain states, and legal in others. for example, you may not be allowed to keep a raccoon in texas, but it might be legal in idaho. almost any wild animal can be kept as a pet, but you have to have a license, and to get a license you have to be at least 21 years of age. personally, i dont encourage keeping wild animals captive. its cruel and not in their nature. it can also be dangerous to the owner. hope this helps!

You shouldn't keep any wild animal as a pet. If you find abandoned babies then call your local animal rescue, but make sure it has actually been abandoned by keeping an eye on the animal for around 2 -4 hours to see if a parent comes back.
there are many different types of animals that you can keep as pets. most people stick with dogs or cats because they make wonderfull loving companions. you can also own pets such as snakes, lizards, hamsters, ferrets, rabbits, or fish. if you have time and money you can even start your own farm. ev…ery animla is different so before you purchess one you should look into its needs and learn as much as you can about its breed.

because we as humans need constant attention and some humans do not get enough attention to work or other things. so the pet gives them the attention they so want. So the human a) can feel needed, as the pet depends on them for everything. b) can give affection with little risk of being hurt - ani…mals are far more forgiving than humans. c) can have company when the company of other humans would require more space/time/effort/attention.

There are some "trivial" differences between humans and animals; for example, only humans have invented digital watches.. However, what used to be considered unique about humans; for example toolmaking or local culture, has now be found in chimpanzees and other primates - in recent years, humans do…n't seem quite so far from chimpanzees and there has been some suggestion that chimps should be reclassified as hominids.. What seems unique in the way the human mind works is the ability to abstract; for example, "Ann told Bill that Charlie likes Diana". Humans can follow the three levels of abstraction, no animal has been shown to have that kind of ability.. Usually, humans keep pets as company - often as psuedo children. ( Full Answer )
\nYes and No, Yes because we can provide food and shelter for them, But not if they grew up in the wild and you put them into captivity. Everyone has a different point of view. If you think it's right then to you it is.
Are you asking, why people have animals as pet? Because if you are, then I would like to ask the question, why not? I am guessing maybe you are asking, why would a person want a pet? What's the benefits and stuff? If that is what you are asking then, people have pets for many reasons, mostly as comp…anions or to have something to look after and take care of. If you never wanted to take care of something, then this is will be beyond you. Some people have dogs for more then companionship, but to feel safe. People have cats because they are soft and their purring is like magic, it always makes me and everyone I know, smile. As for every ting else, well fish don't do much, but they are fun to watch if you like the water, and having an aquarium filled with fish and rocks and plants and stuff, it's like having a living painting. Sure, there are some bad sides to animals. They are messy, and they have to be trained and fed and watered and cleaned and some require your attention every four to eight hours. For most people, it is priceless, because pets return what we spend on them in their own unique way. I hope this is what your question was regarding. If not, sorry if I talked your ear off.

If your question is, if cats could be a pet, then the answer is yes, of coarse. Just don't expect a warm welcome home unless you have food on you.
Well there are lots of interesting reptiles and amphibians around that you can keep as pets and will live for a while such as a tree frog, bearded dragon, snake or a turtle. You could also find an exotic bird or you can also own scorpians. Axolotles can be lots of fun aswell. Hope this helps.
It depends on what kind of animal. If you keep it for more than a week and then let it back into the wild,the animal (if it is wild) could forget how to hunt and then shortly die or get killed.If you are talking about strays, then get all of its shots and make sure that you wash your hands after you… touch it (before the shots)..

town/city: dogs, cats, fish, snakes, turtles, frogs, etc. country/farm: horses, dogs, cats, pigs, fish, cow,etc. Also to find more go to your local animal shelter or animl specialist.
There are a lot of people in this world who think only of themselves and what they want. Many people look at baby animals, fall in love, and can only think about what they want from this adorable, precious little animal. They think that because they love the animal so much, they could not possibly d…o anything to hurt it, and would take care of it as if they are the animal's natural parent.They spend time with the baby animal, and the more time spent, the more tame is the animal (they believe--they WANT to believe). I have seen the way some people actually believe they are doing the best thing for a wild animal baby by keeping it as a pet! (I once was one of those people.) The example of the Las Vegas magic act, with the gorgeous white tiger, is exactly what I am talking about. These people had raised this animal from a baby, lived in close contact for many years, and still its unpredictable, wild nature gained control and nearly killed its owner. What a beautiful, fascinating, powerful wild animal is that tiger. I would hate to see it killed, because of the stupidity of its owner.When the needs of the animal are the only considerations, it becomes clear that the only answer is return to the wild. Sadly, we have no way to force selfish people to think only of the animal. ( Full Answer )
Rabbits, lizards, birds, dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters,a lot of kinds of bugs, frogs, and.....very rarely......monkeys.
Animals, such as some people are great companion's. They keep good company and help boost your energy. They are a big responsibility though. I would know because I have only gone three days of my life without a dog. they never forget the owners and have affection on them always and not like humans…. ( Full Answer )

Is it legal to keep an animal that's meant to be a wild animal as a pet if you found it hurt and treat its injury?
Unless you are a professional you should never attempt to treat an animal, you should always take it to a qualified and certified veterinary surgeon. Unless its a badger it should be okay to keep but if you can release it back into the wild, you should. Badgers are illegal to keep as they are a prot…ected species. If you should find an injured or dead badger you should call the RSPCA right away. ( Full Answer )
In most locations, yes. Check with your location's Department of Wildlife (may be called something else, like "Department of Fish & Game") to see if it's true in your area for the specific type of animal you're interested in. In some cases, injured or orphaned animals may be temporarily cared for… by private citizens, but this usually requires the explicit permission of and supervision by the department to insure that it is not being raised as a pet; the goal in such cases is to eventually release it back into the wild.

Many people believe it is wrong to keep wild jungle cats as pets, such as lions and tigers. Zoos keep them in captivety for protection and conservation purposes. Some people simply have them living in huge cages in their backyards.
No. Animals belong in the wild. That is their home and that is where they should stay.
You feed it, make sure it is well hydrated, make sure it has physical exercise each day, if it's in a cage of bowl make sure it fits and isn't squeezed into it. Make sure you aren't cruel to the animal in any way! Also make sure you take it to the vet to have frequent check ups, make sure it's desex…ed ( Full Answer )
While it is never a good idea to bring crabs home from the beach, all hermit crabs are wild because they cannot be bred in captivity. So in essence, the hermit crab you buy at the petstore IS a wild crab as all hermit crabs are wild harvested.

Big cats such as lions and tigers are awe inspiring, beautiful animals. People are often intrigued by keeping big wild cats as pets, but what kind of pets do tigers, lions, bobcats, and other big cats make? Owners need to remember that even the smaller of the non domestic cats, such as bobcats, ser…vals, and lynx, are not at all like domestic cats. Different species have different temperaments, but all of these cats can exhibit unwanted behavior from urine marking to aggression. Most of these cats will need spacious outdoor cages in order to thrive. It is a huge commitment and responsibility to properly care for smaller wild cats such as bobcats. The large cats such as lions, tigers, leopards, and cougars are even more problematic. Even if they are not overtly aggressive, their natural tendencies must be remembered. They are predators, and even at play their huge size and strength makes them a threat. Many people do keep big cats like bobcats, tigers, and lions as pets. Tigers and lions are surprisingly easy and inexpensive to purchase as pets. This means anyone can own a large powerful carnivore whether or not they are equipped to properly care for them. Pet tigers have been involved in several fatalities and maulings in the US and Canada in recent years. However, even more pet tigers and other big cats end up neglected, abused, or given up to sanctuaries when their owners cannot care for them. I am certain that there are owners of big cats who go out of their way to provide appropriate housing and diet and have no problems, but there are countless others who are very misguided in their expectactions and ability to provide the proper care. Case in point: the man in Harlem who raised a pet tiger in his apartment . The Captive Wildlife Safety Act The Captive Wildlife Safety Act was introduced and passed in the US House of Representatives in 2004 to address the problems of availability of wild cats as pets. This Act prohibits the interstate and foreign trade in exotic cats, including lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars and cougars for the pet trade. Circuses, zoos, wildlife rehabilitators and some other licensed facilities are exempt. This legislation was introduced with the sole purpose of making these big cats unavailable to the pet trade, although it is not an outright ban on ownership. I am not sure how much of an impact this law would have, really, but it is a good start in reducing the ownership of pet tigers, lions, and other large cats. Experts estimate that there are around 10,000 to 15,000 tigers now kept as pets or in private facilities in the US. For perspective, it is estimated that there are only about 5,000 left in the wild. Things to Think About If owning a big cat still intrigues you, here are some factors to consider: . Keeping wild cats such as tigers, lion, bobcats and cougars may be illegal where you live (either under local laws or by wider regulations - see " Legal Issues "). . You will need to find a veterinarian that is willing to treat your wild cat (this will not be easy!). . All big (wild) cats have sharp claws and teeth and can be quite destructive. . Large cats eat massive quantities of raw meat. . Big cats need a lot of space, and usually custom built cages, even smaller species like bobcats. . You will need to provide lots of intellectual and physical enrichment opportunities, much like a zoo, for your wild cat. . Big cats tend to spray (urine) and they have a musky odor. Here are some pages that discuss the issues around selecting a big cat as a pet: . General Requirements for Private Ownership - from Wild about Cats, a good page to look at for anyone who has wondered what would be involved in owning a large wild cat. . The Cost of a Big Cat - from Big Cat Rescue , this article covers the maintenance costs of keeping big cats (housing, feeding, etc.), which many owners don't realize are very expensive compared to the initial cost of getting a cub. . Animal Abuse - also from Big Cat Rescue, this article discusses how the future for many big cats is a life of neglect and even abuse when their owners cannot handle them anymore. See the statistics for the sanctuary with respect to number of calls they get about unwanted cats, the number they are able to take and the number they can find new homes for. Also see their article on breeding to see why this sanctuary does not breed their cats and why the casual owner shouldn't either. Poll: Should private ownership of big cats be permitted?

Yes!!! I had one that I set free this morning. If you want one take a jar with honey, molasses or other super sweet stuff like smashed overripe fruit. Dig a hole put the top of the jar ground level and fill it up, around the sides and wait at night they will come.
If it is wild, then yes, keep it outside like in your garage. Make sure in can't get out, or your in big trouble. Tanks or buckets with lids and air holes are best for wild mice. Pet mice can go in a wire cage though. The same with keeping a shrew as a pet [where to keep it]. hope this helps.
There are many people that keep endangered animals as pets, some legally and others illegally. So a license will be needed to keep one legally, and you will have to provide everything that particular animal needs. It is never easy to raise wild animals, endangered or not, for a wild animal will alwa…ys be a wild animal and even some of the most "tamed" wild animals have been known to attack and even kill their loving owners. Best to leave the raising endangered animals to the experts! And even they sometimes get eaten. ( Full Answer )

Many People keep dogs and cats as companions Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of pet ownership for the animals involved and for community as a whole?
The benefits of owning a cat or dog vary greatly depending on theperson. Many dogs are used as service dogs and even as emotionalsupport dogs.
because you love it and you care for it and it will listen to you when others do not
You can put it in a plastic box, or terrarium. Add a paper towel, or shredded newspaper that is damp (so they can drink); Bugs DO prefer to be outdoors though.
In my opinion, no wild animal should be kept as a pet, excepting zoos. But there are stupid people out there who do.
Because the animal may not be use to its new habitat. Even if you get it as a baby it won't recognise the place. 1. Because of the environment. 2. Because of the prey. And 3. Because of the scent( or smell ) of the place. It won't feel at home if it can't smell its prey or its own kind.

No wild animal should be kept as a household pet, especially one that can kill you, such as a tiger, lion, bear, or python.
When wild anmals get fed by humans, they keep coming back. (Notice all the pigeons) Getting free handouts is a lot easier than hunting.
It depends on what animal it is. Most don't because firstly, they aren't tamed and secondly, they might run away or attack who gets near it. But some might if they can handle it, and if they are able to tame it somehow.
This will depend upon your definition of cruel - if you provide adequate food, water, shelter and room to express normal behaviors, some will say this is not cruel. Others will disagree. A more practical point is keeping wild animals as pets isn't safe, for you or the animal. Domesticated animals (…cats, dogs, ferrets, some rodents) have adapted to life with humans and get along pretty well. Wild animals fear humans and will typically react with either flight (trying to run away) or fight (trying to kill you). In either reaction, the animal or you may end up dead. Also, wild animals cannot be treated with the same medications and vaccines that domesticated animals can, and wild animals carry different diseases than domesticated animals. Illness can travel both ways between humans and animals, with devastating effects. ( Full Answer )
I don't think they should. Wild animals are called wild for a reason - and that is that they don't make good pets. They may not be possible to get housebroken, they may turn aggressive, they may get stressed out and unwell.
Yes! In fact, many animals are kept as pets all across the globe. A few of the most common types are dogs, cats, rabbits, parrots, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, horses, and reptiles such as turtles and snakes. Some humans even own farms where they create homes for pigs, cows, goats, sheep, and mor…e! ( Full Answer )
This varies considerably by municipality and province. For example, in Vancouver it is legal to raise chickens in the city. It is not legal in Edmonton.
No. They shoudn't because it seprates an animal from its home and its family its famly is still living today. Typically, no you shouldn't have a wild animal as a pet. Check the laws for you state or area. But as a good rule, I wouldn't keep anything that could eat, kill, or severely injure me! Note…: WILD ANIMALS CAN NOT BE TAMED. Wild animals are a huge handfull of work, some wild animals need a lisence to actually keep them! If you are thinking of getting a wild pet, it should be less of a challenge, because wild animals are difficult to handle! No, even if hand-raised they still have the instincts and breeding of wild animals. If they are trapped in captivity they will be miserable and agressive. Also consider the fact that they are incredibly hard to care for. No we shouldn't. Wild animals can become aggressive. I heard of this man and his lion and he took really good care of it. But still one day he was walking his lion and he tripped. And guess what? The lion got so startled, that it attacked his leg!! Did he survive?! Yes but that lion could have killed him. So if you get a wild animal and it attacks you don't say I didn't warn you. I heard of a little girl that wanted a pet tiger. Her parents got her one, and everyting was just fine- for about ten years. The girl was 16 when her 'pet' killed her. Please do not make the same mistake her parents made. ( Full Answer )
Yes you will keep your pets as a non-member but you cannot use orwalk them unless they are hamsters. They will still be there andyou will be able to use them again once you are member again.
Tarantulas are not the call them by name and have them responding kind of pet but you can keep any type of tarantulas from anywhere on the world.
