Do you think that they are worth their price? Ken's Exotics sells them for $3,500 each.

Virginia does not have any regulations on primates, and them seem one of the easier ones.

Fast too. If they're worth it depends on you, do you want one that bad? And how hard are they to keep? Are their dietary needs well known? What is their average lifespan? Do you have the time to spend with it? Will it be able to co exist with your other pets?
