Do you want a monkey ?

. They are unpredictable, destructive, expensive and they need a lot of care and attention. Since some of them can live for over 40 years, they truly are a life-time commitment. Are you the person that is willing to spend most of his free time with his monkey ? Before you consider buying a monkey, you have to learn as much as possible about them.

You have to figure out which specie is perfect for you.
