Why don't more people have monkeys as pets?

everyone loves cute monkeys!


Answer by  steffie (42)

Monkeys do not make the best pets. They are cute,but they are a lot of work to care for them. They get into everything and love to climb, so most people do not have the right kind of house for them.

People don't have monkeys as pets for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons include: space limitations, environmental and health concerns, dietary and behavioral issues, and safety concerns. I would imagine most people would think that monkeys do not belong in the average home but rather out in the wild or a licensed zoo.

While monkeys are cute and fascinating to watch, they don't belong in homes with humans. It's cruel to remove them from their natural habitat just so we can have them as pets instead of allowing them to be the wild animals they are.

Because in most countries, monkeys are classified as an endangered species, or wildlife. Therefore, rendering pet monkeys unsafe for keeping as pets. Also, most people lack the knowledge and resources, e.g. natural diet, open space, trees, etc. that monkeys would need to be happy and healthy.
