Finger Monkey Cutest Rarest Strangest Most Exotic Pet!!!!!!You Will Love Them!!!!
The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world. It’s so small that it can hold on to your finger. This cute little primate hugs and grips on to your finger so tight that it pulls your heartstrings and you wish you could take it home with you. Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets. They are also known by the names ‘pocket monkey’ and ‘tiny lion’. These primates belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygmaea. They are native to rain-forests of Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.
Finger monkeys are exotic pets and you can purchase one for anything between $2,000 – $4,000. Looking after it can be an expensive affair and increases the finger monkey cost substantially. But before you buying one, you need to check whether adopting or keeping a pet finger monkey is legal in your state. If there are no legal issues, you can search for finger monkey breeders on the Internet. Look for pet owners who may wish to give away their finger monkeys for adoption. If you find one, you may be able to strike a good deal. If you’re planning to purchase from a pet store, make sure your prospective pet is disease free. There are also other things you need to look into – the rather complex diet and difficulty in getting veterinarian trained in primate care. Make sure you’re able to provide both.
