    owning a pet monkey in va?

    Well, I see online you can buy capuchin monkeys with their papers and everything and marmosets in tx, ca, and a couple other states.

    Could you legally own one of these in Va? or could you get some kind of license to own one as a pet?

    I saw this little guy for $600

    that would be pretty cool to have as a pet

    or a little capuchin for like $2500

    haha. i hear there not all their made out to be. the pet monkey on friends.....marcella was it? i heard they had a lot of problems with her. flinging poo, screeching, biting, not cooperating. i dont think a pet monkey would be the least bit enjoyable.

    yeah, i always wanted one as a pet, but not too sure how practical it would be to have one, but was curious to see if VA laws would allow this seeing as how its one of, if not the worst "state" in the US

    Monkeys are way more trouble than they are worth. My father had one for a while. I have a friend who had one. I guarantee if you get one you won't keep it for long.

    VA laws do allow it, however.

    My dad's monkey would open all the cabinets and throw everything out on the floor. He would also jerk off a lot.

    I worked at a vet hospital for 4 years. Monkeys do NOT make good pets. Period, end of story. I would say the average client at the vets office kept a monkey for about a month. The longest somebody kept one was a couple years. She had it illegally though and the state took it from her.

    They're nasty Motherfuckers for all of the above reasons and much more.

    ahahahaha, holy shit ya that made me lmao, and everytime i read that its just as funny.

    thanks for the input though, they do seem a little too independent to be pets.

    it still would be cool to just sit at home all day and play video games with a little pet monkey

    I was seriously considering the whole non-human primate thing a couple of years back. I decided against it and I suggest you do the same unless you are damn sure you know what you are getting into.
