In searching the web I can't find any white ones - so I think those are referred to as silver.

I posted another thread in here on the silver - not sure about where to get them, but I'll do some searching for you!

There is a guy in texas that deals with primates, I actually found him searching for flying squirrels and happened along his site. Don't remember the name but I will try to do some searching.

Found this ad - has a huge pic with it!!

We had one baby Marmoset born on 02-28-02. If you look under the mothers right arm you can see the baby. It will be bottle fed and will be ready to go in a few weeks. I call them "Mutmosets" The father is a Geoffroyxcooli, and the mother is a cooli. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Shipping will be available, but I would prefer pick up.
$2000.00
All credit cards accepted...USDA liscensed....Air freight shipping only...$25.00 box charge...Phone calls and credit cards will be given preference...
Thanks,
Ryan

You bet! Also, I posted a link in the thread "Marmoset Websites" - that guy seems to know his stuff, you could email him and see if he can help you find a breeder.

When looking for this guy (that I couldn't find again - of course!) I came across various other sites that sell some really exotic animals. One site was actually selling tigers Just don't get it. When people have all of these different types of animals I call them zoos (and I mean the real ones lol) One site even sold deer. Uh, there is an overpopulation of them here and I can look in my back yard and see them!

After reading all that info..I think Ill stick to looking at pictures and the monkeys in the zoo LOL...sigh..I have too many animals as it is. It would be very awsome to have a monkey though. The little ones are the cutest..having a monkey is like having a child.. Thanks for ALL the interesting info Christi
