someone buy me a monkey!

my daughter asked me why there were no monkeys for sale in the pet shop? i told her it was because they throw crap at the customers.....now i know there probably are regulations prohibiting the sale of monkeys as pets but don't you think that would be the most popular store in the mall?

Er.. probably not sold in pet stores cause maybe it's considered an "exotic" animal by some states and you need a license for it? I don't know really

but he escaped when he bit me on the testicle. He is now running around the county spreading the rabies he got from me.
watch out!!

if it bit cotton anywhere it's prolly dirty.

dirty dirty monkey.




seriously, I think it's illegal to own a monkey because they require all kinds of special care, and most people could not handle it. plus they're very expensive.

Wasn't there a thread just like this awhile ago? I think the general concensus was that monkeys are expensive, dirty, and they smell like little sasquaches.

i had your sound clip analyzed....looks like you have an evil closet monkey listening to his tunes with the base turned up too high...monkeys can't be any more expensive, dirty or odiferous(is that a word) than kids

Assuming your asking from a US perspective, importation of monkeys and 'non-human primates' for the pet industry is prohibited, mainly because of the connections with Ebola, B Virus, Monkey Pox, Yellow Fever, Simian Immunodefficency Virus, TB and any other yet to be identified pathogens. Also their stronger than the average pet, have teeth like razors and can be unpredicatable. Frankly the thought of packs of stray baboons wandering the streets fills me with terror.

As for legislation on monkeys bred in the US for this purpose, who knows?

Sweet, so you are saying importation of "human primates" for pet industry is allowed? I want a pet swedish midget. Just so i can throw them. Or maybe one of those mail-ordered brides. Or even my own pet accountant. A pet accountant would definitely rock.

:laugh:

I'd be someone's pet accountant... :wink2:

So, SD wants a monkey.

I'd probably want an interesting bird. Maybe even something as mundane as a cockatiel.

HAHAHAHAHA



i think most parents would foresee the chaos of owning a monkey would have and not to many would be sold.
