What is the most expensive pet monkey in the world?
May 13, 2010
Do you have a pet? If you do, the
chances are that it’s a dog, a cat, or maybe even an exotic lizard or snake.
It’s true. Some people take pet-owning to a whole new level and strive to have
the oddest and most unconventional pets imaginable. Among those, is the monkey.
But how much do pet monkeys cost to own? And of them, what’s the most expensive
pet monkey in the world?
The average pet monkey costs approximately $1000 -
$1500. And that doesn’t include the cost of bottles to feed them, diapers to
keep your house clean, and tethers for it. And while this may seem like a steep
fee for some, it’s nowhere close to the most expensive pet monkey.
Chimpanzees can be a very popular pet due to their
intelligence, their ability to use tools, their memory skills, and their ability
to laugh. And while chimpanzees may not be common in households, they’re very
common among researchers and those who need animals to help them out with
certain tasks. If you’re thinking of taking advantage of some of the more
educated skills that a chimpanzee has, not to mention their social skills that
will keep you companionship for many years, beware. Not only is it illegal to
own a monkey as a pet in 21 different states, they also cost about $50,000. This
makes them the most expensive pet monkey in the world.
