Can you have a Pet Mongoose? Legal Domesticated Mongoose, Where are they for Sale?
Anyone who has read the Rudyard Kipling book Rikki-Tikki-Tavi or has seen a video of one fighting a snake will no doubt agree that the mongoose is a really impressive creature. So is it possible to keep one as a pet? Mongooses, despite their skill as predators, are actually quite tamable and could make excellent pets. Unfortunately though it is illegal to keep mongooses as pets in most countries throughout the world. This is due to their protected status as wildlife. As a result, any pet supplier claiming to be selling mongooses is most likely doing so illegally.
