Recently, Ukrainian TikTok has been flooded with a trend for pet monkeys, which have become a real sensation among users. You can find an exotic pet in specialized pet stores or from private breeders, where prices can range from 500 (UAH 19,793) to 2000 (UAH 79,174) euros, depending on the breed and age of the animal.

OBOZ.UA found out how much exotic animals cost in Ukraine and where they can be purchased. Also, what types of monkeys can be kept in the house.

According to zoo experts, a monkey pet is really a pet for those who are ready to devote a lot of time to communication and training of their pet. There are different breeds of monkeys for home keeping.

Which monkey breeds can live at home

Preference should be given to those that do not grow more than 1 meter and weigh up to 3-4 kg. Monkeys have sharp teeth, clingy feet, and are quite strong, so if large individuals show aggression, serious injuries are possible. The most popular types of monkeys for the home:

  • toy monkeys
  • capuchins
  • macaques
  • saimyros.

Only experienced breeders who know how to properly train and care for primates can afford these types of pets. These breeds are more intelligent and easy to train.
