  • Umm in alot of states its illegal if its not in your state and you still want one make sure you do some research but honestly I can't think of any where to get a pet money legally. You can try the Black Market but once again illegal.

  • Hey Liz! Its actually not illegal as many people think. You need an exotic animal handlers license, and the monkey would need to be vet checked on a regular basis. Lucky for you because I have my tech license, I also have my exotic animal one too =) Somehow I don't think you are serious though, right?!

  • I would not recommend having a monkey for a pet. I used to want them, but they aren't as great for pets as you think. My uncle had a pet spider monkey and he said it went to the bathroom every time it got excited and just overall that they don't make good pets.

  • I was around a pet monkey in Panama and when he got older he wanted to breed and starting acting wild. He bit two people that I know of and both got a horrible infection.
