Where To Get A Pet Monkey?

The only way to get a pet monkey in the United States is to obtain a license from the US Fish and Wildlife Services, as it is illegal to own a wild monkey without a permit. The permits are intended for scientific research or educational purposes; not for keeping a pet monkey at home. Monkey owners must also abide by standards of care issued by the US Department of Agriculture, which require obtaining a proper enclosure, providing appropriate medical care and a balanced diet, and providing opportunities for mental and physical of the animal.
