Can you have a Pet Meerkat? Legal Domesticated Meerkats, Where are they for Sale?

Meerkats are extremely cute and intelligent. As a result, many people desire them as pets. But is this possible, and would this even be legal? The answer to both these questions, in most cases, is no. Meerkats are protected by multiple laws in the interests of their well-being. As a result, almost all sales of meerkats except to zoos are illegal. If you were able to obtain a meerkat as a pet, it most likely would not survive well in captivity, as they crave open spaces and constantly need to burrow, looking for food. Most meerkats die in captivity.
