Squirrel Monkeys and Owl Monkeys (Douroucoulis) as pets

Postby The Herper » Sun Feb 07, 2016 2:25 am

So anyways, I've been obsessed with the idea of having a monkey as a pet, and I find these two species fascinating. I'm not seriously considering getting one (yet). I can't seem to find extensive info on either species in captivity behaviour-wise, (especially owl monkeys) so I'd like to hear something from someone who's worked with them/know a ton about them.

Are they calm/hyper/aggressive/sweet/ect?

Thanks in advance!

welcome to sybils message board.

I personally do not know much about monkeys. if you decide to get one make sure
they are legal in your area. I recommend extensive research (which looks to me that is what you are doing now)

some of the other members would know more about them than I would.

I did find this, hopefully, this will be a little helpful:

Thanks for the warm welcome! icon-smile

I hope I get some primate owners experience. There doesn't seem to be many of them these days.

Well I know someone with owl monkeys. I'm not that into monkeys so don't know a bunch about them. They are friendly and curious though. Stay close to or on her. And apparently if they like a smell they will rub i into their fur.

Thanks for the info TamanduaGirl! Are the monkeys fixed by any chance, or are they just naturally calm?
Do you know anybody that has experience with Squirrel monkeys?

I think they are intact. I don't think I know anyone with squirrel monkeys.
