    This is all I could find on MD pet ownership laws:

    "The bill prohibits the possession of wild and exotic animals as pets, including lions, tigers, chimpanzees, monkeys, and caimans (in the crocodile family)."

    "Maryland

    9/29/06

    Beginning October 1, it will be illegal for individuals to import, possess, breed or sell certain dangerous wild animals as pets in Maryland.

    The animals include lions, tigers, servals, monkeys, wolves, wolf-dog hybrids, alligators, crocodiles, raccoons, caimans, members of the dog family other than the domestic dog, and members of the cat family other than the domestic cat.

    The new rules are aimed at the pet trade and do not apply to legitimate animals sanctuaries, research facilities or zoos and other exhibitors licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture that operate primarily to display animals."
