Hi,

I'm doing a report for college on Exotic pets in the UK. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find (or give me) a comprehensive list of exotic animals that are legal in the UK, what require easy to get hold of permits, and what require more demanding permits etc etc?

It would be greatly appreciated!

Editted to add: It has been some time since I've read up on RSPCA's actions towards the exotic industry, as far as I can recall they were trying to make it more difficult for people to own exotic pets/reptiles in UK. Any more information or links on this subject would also be greatly appreciated!

As far as I am aware, if you can 'source' an animal legally, and aquire a DWAL if necessary, then you can keep whatever you like over here in the UK.

Thank you. :D

Is there anyway to obtain a list of which animals require a DWAL and which don't?

Editted to add: Nevermind, I found the list of DWAL animals. Thanks!

Any info about the RSPCA issue?

If anything you can search for the governmental department on google, email one of the contacts and they will forward your request to the right person. That way you could receive an official list.

If you need any help just message me and let me know
