I recently spoke to a vet tech that works in NY, who said that it is only illegal to buy/sell gliders in the 5 boroughs, not to own... can anyone confirm/deny this?

I was also curious because of the exotic pet vets in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, etc... If exotic pets were 100% illegal to be in those areas, why would there be exotic pet vets?! Even on the GC glider vet list, there are a few listed in Manhattan, Staten Island, etc..?!

I would contact the local government to get a copy of the actual wording of the law.

Actually in some states where gliders and other exotics are illegal to own.We do have vets that will care for such animals.I have spoken to several vets in areas where they are illegal and other animals were illegal.But the vets will take care of them cause they know that all tho illegal they need to have proper care. But I would say that before getting into any exotics you need to check both state ,and city laws. Cause all tho they are legal in Missouri we have cities that are illegal to own them. Same is said about other states.

This is very true, Tammy. My vet practices in Fairfax, VA but gliders are illegal there.

An exotic vet may take care of gliders but it's not his only avenue.

Agreed, however the one in Manhattan is an Exotic Pet vet... not sure. Just curious. Thanks for the feedback, I'll get back to this if/when I find anything official out.
