You'd be surprised to know the animals you cannot own in our city.

If you ask anyone outside of the state of Louisiana, they would probably assume that we not only can own an alligator but that most of us do. After all, how do they expect us to get to and from our destination down here in the swamp? Just hop on ole Gater and head down the bayou.

Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, we cannot own alligators as pets. Not even here in Louisiana. After coming to that realization, I must admit, I got a little curious. So what can we own as pets in Louisiana?

After a little research it became very clear that Louisiana has some of the strictest laws when it comes to owning exotic animals. To take it even further, I learned that within the state, you'd be hard-pressed to find a city with stricter exotic animal pet laws in our state.

So, after doing a deep dive, I have ten animals you absolutely cannot own in Shreveport, Louisiana.
