Is it legal to breed Hedgehogs in Idaho ?

Have been told you can have up to 3 females and not be required to have a USDA license. Have also been told they are not legal in the state ?


Hedgehogs are not classified as wildlife in Idaho so Idaho Fish and Game does not have jurisdiction over them. 

Check with the Idaho Dept of Agriculture ( for more information.
