    Yes you can. You can also have a permit. How do you think people have pet tigers and lions?

    Yes, you can own endangered animals as pets and you cn breed them. The requirements are different in differnt states but the requirements for each state are with the fish and game department for that state. Example - monkeys In Florida you need 1000 hours working with monkeys and a license through the department of Fish and game. You have to be inspected and meet certain criteria regarding housing, food, maintenance etc. Same thing with alligators. Whales, bears, tigers, lions - same thing. Some times some animals are easier than others but inall cases - most require a license/inspection/testing.
