The most common place to buy a monkey is from a licensed, experienced exotic pet dealer. **Prices for monkeys range from a few hundred dollars up to the thousands, depending on the species and age of the monkey. ** Some pet shops also carry monkeys but it is important to research the breeders and sellers to make sure that the monkeys have been treated humanely and raised well.
Additionally, you can adopt a monkey from an animal rescue center or sanctuary that specializes in exotic animals. These organizations will provide veterinary care to the adopted monkey and work with the new owner to ensure healthy and safe living conditions.
