A finger monkey, also known as a pygmy marmoset, is a small New World monkey native to rainforest regions of South America. It is not sold as a pet in the US, as these monkeys are considered to be wild animals that require a specialized habitat in order to survive. Therefore, they are illegal to own or possess in the US.
However, some exotic pet dealers in the US sell finger monkeys to people living in certain states where the exotic pet trade is not heavily regulated. In addition, finger monkeys can also be purchased online from third-party exotic pet dealers.
Before buying a finger monkey online, however, buyers should first check with their local and state regulations to ensure they are allowed to own a finger monkey in their area.
