I've had them all cats, dogs, guinea pigs, salamanders, hamsters, birds, fish, and I sure there's more in there. I love animals and I when I watch animal TV shows I think about how cool it would be to own a exotic animal. Pandas, Koalas, tigers, cheetahs, elephants, now I know I will NEVER own these but you would be surprises that the state of Illinois had to put these animals on a "can't own list", because yes, people have tired.

If you want to see these animals you're going to have to visit your favorite zoo, which legally can own and take care of these animals for zoology and education purposes. So, what animals can't you own in Illinois? Check out the list below.
