Can I Legally Own A Hyena?

There is no such thing as a “pet” hyena.

The closest you can get is “captive”.

And chances are, even if it happens to be legal in your area, you do not have the knowledge or resources necessary to keep a captive hyena.

It would not be a pet.

Has anyone ever tamed a hyena?

The striped hyena is easily tamed and can be fully trained, particularly when young. Although the Ancient Egyptians did not consider striped hyenas sacred, they supposedly tamed them for use in hunting.

Are there domesticated hyenas?

A hyena is a wild animal, and cannot be a pet or “a domestic animal”—it takes many generations of dedicated breeding to make the genetic changes necessary to domesticate a wild animal, and not all wild animals can be domesticated. If you want a pet, visit an animal shelter.

Can you have an aardwolf as a pet?

The Aardvark does not destroy the termite mound while feeding, because It often returns to the same mound for hunting. The Aardwolf will live up to 15 Years in Captivity and 10-12 years in the wild. The aardvark is basically a shy animal, but that doesn’t mean you should go pet one.
