 Giant Pouched Rat?

Are they legal pets?
I live in New Mexico so most things are legal... but are they legal anywhere?

They’re illegal in most states in the US. Since New Mexico is in the south I’m going to guess they’re illegal, but hey I could be wrong. They started being illegal in Florida...because people in Florida like to take big animals from one place [when they’re small] and let them go there [when they’re big]...where they then start problems whether it be eating cats or spreading monkey pox...I’m sure you could do a google search to find out what states they are legal in.

AH! As of Sept. 08 the ban was lifted, however they cannot be imported, so finding them will be tough.
Just thought I should mention it. I’m looking into them again.
