Each year, hundreds of illegal pets come to us in such a manner, or as confiscations. Given our limited space and resources, it is a challenge for us to take in all of them. It’s illegal to keep exotic animals like cotton-top tamarins as pets.
Thousands of wild animals are removed from the wild to meet the demand for illegal pets and most die while being smuggled across borders. Do not buy exotic pets.
