Readying a Home for Your New Pet Pygmy Marmoset

If you want a pet, but prefer something other than a dog or a cat, a Pygmy marmoset can be your perfect alternative. It is an animal that can provide you with a pet’s love for its expected lifespan of up to 20 years. Here are a few things you need to prepare before purchasing a pet marmoset monkey:

A place to call home

Obviously, you’ll need a cage. Despite the Pygmy marmoset’s miniscule frame, you’ll want a big cage, at least 2 ½ ft. x 5 ft. x 4 ft. This gives the new member of your family plenty of space to roam around and get some exercise.

A new schedule

The little monkeys are very social creatures who demand a lot of time and attention. In many cases, this will require people in your home to adjust their schedules to keep the Pygmy marmoset company. Be sure to talk to everyone in your household about making the necessary changes to their respective schedules before you buy one.

A permit

As the Pygmy marmoset is an exotic animal, you’re legally required to obtain a special permit before you can own one. The application process varies for each state. For an accurate step-by-step application process, consult your state fish and game department.

When purchasing an exotic pet like the Pygmy marmoset, only do business with a reputable provider. Experienced professionals can provide you with a well-loved animal, as well as expert tips on how to take care of one properly.
