Research everything needed to keep one and then report back to me so I know if I can have one or not
Careful with that website, isn't that the one with a lot of the articles on this thread: https://forums.avianavenue.com/inde...maintenance-pets-article-irritates-me.252553/
@finchly apparently they are only legal in Connecticut without a permit? But other places need permits and it isn't legal in some states?
As of 2020, only the state of Connecticut lists a "Patagonian mara" by name as being legal to own in the state.
Other states where they are legal without requiring a permit include Oregon, Alabama, Washington, and Texas. States that ban them or require permits include California, Georgia, New Hampshire, Colorado, and Hawaii. Laws do change all the time, so check with your state and local municipality to find out if it is legal to own a Patagonian cavy before you get one.
