edThe cost of a monkey can vary significantly, depending on the species, size, and age of the monkey. A popular pet monkey such as a Capuchin or a Squirrel monkey can cost anywhere between $5,000 and $10,000. Primates such as Marmosets and Tamarins are cheaper, ranging from $1,500 to $2,000.
More exotic species such as the Macaque can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000. Furthermore, monkeys may require annual veterinary fees that must also be factored into the total cost.
