I don't approve of anyone adopting anything other than otherwise homeless domestic animals. However much someone may love an animal, the exotics so often have special needs that simply can't be met in captivity - and the captivity is so often cruel in and of itself.

I had a spider monkey as a pet when I was a child (and didn't know any better). She was wonderful, we loved her, and we tried to give her the best life possible - but she didn't belong in suburbia. And when we had to move to a place where she couldn't be allowed to run free, my parents had to send her away from the only home she'd ever known and give her to strangers (where she ended up in a horrible cage as we later learned).

I'm all in favor of laws banning trade in primates. They belong in their own environment - the wild.

Signed,shared and noted. Thanks for sharing Cal. Great news, these animals are meant to be admired in their natural habitats. It is impossible to give them the essentials that they require to keep them healthy. Then there is the safety issues as we hear about quite often.

However intriguing to keep primates they are highly intelligent and suffer in captivity. The fact that, oft quoted by Zoos as proof of happiness, they breed in captivity does not show or prove they are happy with their predicament.
