Let’s explore the list of the top 10 most exotic pets one can legally own.

Number 10: Tigers

It’s true, one can have a tiger as a pet, but the question is who will be the boss? The largest extant cat species indeed is, in fact, quite an ordinary pet. Most of us might not know that tigers are known for their sharp brains and claws, depending on the situation.

Owning a tiger sounds thrilling but caring for it and training it indeed is a big challenge. Some researches show tigers can calmly coexist with humans, any frustrated, cooped-up cats have the potential of eventually lashing out. The super famous Mike Tyson also owns a pet tiger.

Number 9: Foxes

They are smart, cute, soft, and furry; aren’t foxes just the perfect pets? Foxes can be legally owned; however, the rules vary as per the breeds. Are you willing to own one? The most common and preferred breed is the fennec fox, a pretty manageable and adorably small pack. However, it is still crucial to not forget that even these tiny furry companions can not be fully tamed. A domesticated fox may cost around whopping $9,000.

Number 8: Tarantulas

The tarantulas tend to stay in the dark until they find another meal, which may consist of crickets, wasps, etc. How do the owners of tarantulas even keep track of where their little pet might be? While these supercharged spiders may not be someone’s ideal family pet, as felt by plenty of courageous arachnophobes, but it’s perfectly legal to own tarantulas in many countries around the world. These spiders range from $20 to $200.

Number 7: Alligators

Alligators are another common preference of exotic pet lovers. It is kind of scary how a deadly species like this is actually legal to be owned.
There is no denying that baby alligators are super adorable, but they may grow to be more than 11 feet long, scale a whopping 1,000 pounds, and exist for up to 50 years.

Number 6: Llama

Aren’t the no drama llamas just super cutesy? These calm and lowkey babies can also be legally adopted, and who wouldn’t want one? They are adorable, pretty, soft, harmless, loyal, low-maintenance as well as affectionate. Llamas are also said to be fantastic therapy animals, and this is one of the biggest reasons why so many people want to own one.

Number 5: Boa constrictor

Boa Constrictor is another creepy addition to the list. This large, non-venomous, heavy-bodied snake is exotic enough to attract snake lovers. Even though there is an assurance that the snake is non-venomous, but it may scare a person to death just with its deadly sight and size.

Number 4: Bear
