    Perfectly legal, unless banned by local ordinance (such as large constricting snakes). Generally, they are docile. As far as transmission of disease, that varies with where they come from and what diseases you are worried about.

    it would depend on the state. most places allow rabbits, rodents, common reptiles and chickens, but you may need a license first.
