Hey,

I really would like a monkey as a pet, however i don't even know whether it's legal here in the uk. I have a few friends who claim they have relatives who keep monkeys. What i would like to know is, where do i buy monkeys from? are they expensive/cheap to look after? What are the laws on keeping them?

Obviously they need some sort of special environment which i would be willing to set up in my loft room.

I really love these animals though!

Just get a dog like everyone else.

I think monkeys can be pretty dangerous if you don't know **** about what you're doing?

They must require a ****load of involvement and cash, 10x than what you need with a dog, which is a pretty large amount.

I highly doubt that if you're a UGer, you're capable of taking care of a monkey.

Anyway monkeys also need an insane amount of attention, so when you leave to go to work or school they will get depression if no one is home and they will resort to destroying your house and throwing its own crap at you.

I'm guessing it's a multi because TS joined in March 08.
I could be wrong though...

Why does the fact that monkeys will throw crap at you keep coming back up?


And btw, are we still allowed to post in this thread if the TS was banned :S

What rule!?

yeah i know this seemed like a completely valid thread. It's in the Pit where it belongs, too. I don't see why he should be banned.

The thread itself is fine. Don't worry about that.

i think its the same cost range as keepin a kid that only eats bananas. the monkey could probably wear a diaper, and if you have a really young one, you could probably raise it like a human kid. then flush it when it gets too big, just like a human kid.
