From what I know in my state it's forbidden to keep wild life as "pets". And I do think it's right. You either should do it right (and very few people can), or it has to be in wild.
P.S. What really drives me crazy is people get all those exotic pets and then just throw them away when they don't find them "cute" anymore, or simply can't care for properly.
