Please do not attempt to raise or keep wild animals. When young, wild animals have specific dietary needs and can face developmental problems if these needs are not met.
In addition, young animals need to be raised with their own kind in order to learn the skills they will need to find food and mates, and avoid predators once they are released into the wild. Adult birds can damage their feathers in cages and can face serious health problems as a result of captivity-related stress.
Mammals and reptiles can pose an unexpected danger to humans and can carry human-transmissible diseases and parasites. Wild animals never make good pets, and in California, it is illegal to house wild animals without the proper permits.
