Keeping wild animals
You must have a licence to keep dangerous wild animals.
Animals classed as ‘dangerous wild animals’ are identified in the accompanying schedule to the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976. Examples may include venomous snakes, venomous spiders and most primates.
Zoos, pet shops and circuses are exempt from the provisions of the Act as these premises have separate licensing conditions.
It costs £149.10 plus vet fees for a dangerous wild animals licence, which is renewed annually.
