Monkeys are notoriously difficult as pets. They cannot be housebroken and they wipe their poop everywhere and urinate in t.v.'s, tear drapes off the walls, etc. In most states, they're illegal to own. They aren't a novelty item. > I WISH I KNEW.....that monkeys rocks....i want to : know what kind it is do you know...... : have you tried an exotic pet store?....maybe they have monkeys.
