Is it legal to have a koala as a pet in United States?

    No. Laws about keeping wild animals as pets vary from state to state, but regardless of our laws, Australia does not allow koalas to be sold except to zoos and scientists.  There are a few very good reasons for this: 1. Koalas are not as cute and cuddly as they look, and don’t really make very good pets (especially for people who don’t know how to take care of them), 2. Most people don’t know how to take care of koalas, so keeping them as pets is dangerous for the koala, and 3. They are an endangered species, and therefore anything that could pose a threat to their population can not be permitted.
