American Airlines has announced that insects, hedgehogs and goats will not be allowed on planes.
American says more people were transporting animals and passing them off as "comfort animals."
American Airlines now says that some animals are off limits entirely because they pose a safety or public health risk.
They also say they are limiting the types of "emotional support animals" allowed.
Under the revised guidelines ferrets, spiders, and non-household birds also will not be able to be on planes anymore.
If you have an animal that is allowed, you have to fill out paperwork 48 hours before the flight. This starts July 1.
