edFinding out how much a real monkey costs is not an exact science, as there are so many different types and breeds, and the availability varies enormously. Most monkeys cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars up to $10,000 or more.
Where the monkey is purchased, the type of monkey, and the level of training all play a role in the cost. Other factors, such as age, size, and health condition can also affect the cost. In general, smaller monkeys are less expensive, while larger ones will cost more.
Captive-bred monkeys are usually more expensive than wild-caught ones. Finding a healthy, captive-bred monkey can be difficult, and this can greatly affect the price.
