Are tenrecs now illegal? I just tried posting for sale adverts for mine on junkmail and it declined saying they are illegal/exotic or wild animals? OLX decline my add saying tenrecs are classed as pornography! :smt017

That's taking a "steek" to a whole new low...

Nope they are not illegal. It is far easier to advertise them as "legal tenrecs available" and then add "permits arranged on request".
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Well if some province wanted a transport permit then you can apply for it. Its just to make it look legit.

No they are not. I tried putting some of my hedgehogs up and it said the same thing. Try Gumtree rather.
