In order to own a monkey, you need to be aware of the laws and regulations in your region about owning primates. You must have a suitable habitat to accommodate your monkey and will need to obtain permits from a veterinarian, state or federal agency. Additionally, you will need to be prepared to provide your monkey with the proper diet and regular checkups from a veterinarian.
Ensure your monkey has appropriate enrichment activities and space to play or swing indoors or outdoors. Preparing your home for a monkey can be a major undertaking and takes a lot of consideration.
They are very social animals and will benefit from having another monkey as companion.
