    I had one for a while while living in NewYork with a couple of my buddys. We lived across the hall from my sister and couple of her friends at the time....

    Monkeys just aren't my thing, but I have a freind with a capuchin. If it's something simple you need, I'd be happy to call and ask him.

    Had a spider when I was a teenager. Figured if I could have one of those poop throwers I could have kids.

    I have.
    Didn't own it, just cared for it. It would take a lot of money to get me to do it again.
    Monkeys are delicate and need lots of care and special diet. They also bite viciously and the smaller ones don't have to fling poo, they can just squirt it like their butts are Satan's water gun.

    i was thinking about getting a pygmy marmoset but i was reading about them,,, and it doesnt look like i can afford or have as much time as i thought i had for them.
    was just wondering if anyone had any expierence with them and if so,,, stories.
