Want an interesting twist? Edmonton's new bylaws (as of last summer) forbid the posession of any animal (and their offspring/young) whose adult form typically exceeds 10kg.....this effectively makes boas, blood pythons, and large tortoises illegal in Edmonton, although I am sure that it was not intended to do so when it was written.

...and thanks to an accidental exemption of an exemption, gerbils are technically illegal in Alberta.
