Many people know that it’s impossible to have a lion or a whale as a pet in New York - for fairly obvious reasons.

1. Ferret

In the US, many people own ferrets, but since 1999, they are banned in New York. The former mayor of the city, Rudi Giuliani, introduced this ban due to problems with frequent rabies of these animals. In 2015, Mayor De Blasio’s administration considered lifting the ban, but as a result, it remained in force.

2. Iguana

Keeping these reptiles as pets is prohibited in New York.

3. Pig

Cute mini pigs have conquered the Internet and are becoming increasingly popular in the US as pets. However, not in New York: in this city it is prohibited to keep any kind of pig as a pet. In fact, this ban applies to most farm animals.

4. Hedgehog

The popularity of these animals on the Internet is growing, but their maintenance as pets is illegal in many US states. This is due to their cute, but dangerous needles that can harm the owner if the animal gets scared.

Vipers, cobras, pythons, anacondas and many other snakes are banned as pets in New York.
