You can really own any form of animal if you're granted a license, they're usually very expensive, and for endangered animals, can involve inspections etc.

reckon you could get away with it if you didn't tell anyone, just keep it in the bath or something or in a box.

You can get a license for an otter or a tiger or anything really but its all about the cost of representatives and inspections to make sure you have the right habitat for the critter to live in.

I really want an otter, but I'm not sure where I can take the classes or how to adopt one or how to get a liscense or if it's even legal in SC and the internet isn't helping. I was wondering, Do any of you think you have some good advice? Love Otters too, can you tell me where you got your otter? How much was it?

i own two otters, they are a mess constantly cleaning up after them. they are fun though, very sociable, and small kids and small animals isnt a good thing to have around them if they arent use to it.. its like owning a pit bull. you have to be cautious.

florida, same as you, DUH you need a licence, and you can count on it being around five dollars a day for good care of it. this is high quality food, vet bills, and habitat care
