With an average lifespan of 12 years in the wild, common marmosets are normally found in countries like Brazil and Argentina, with species that breed in various forest types which include coastal and dry forests. The marmoset is also recognized for its white ears and long tail, with coats that vary from grey to yellow or brown colors, and paler facial skin that gradually darkens. Body lengths of both males and females are also relatively the same, with 188 mm as the average height for males and 185 mm for females.

Defined under the family, “callitrichidae”, these new world primates are recognized for their muted coats of golden brown, gray and black on both the head and back, while their legs have shades of tan or yellowish fur. In the wild, pygmy marmosets thrive in an ecosystem surrounded by water and trees, like evergreen forests. As a result they have developed special teeth and claws designed for their survival. Similar to other exotic pets, the behavior of these finger monkeys differ in the wild and when domesticated, which require potential owners to have a basic know-how about their care before owning a baby pygmy marmoset for sale.

As its owner, it will be your responsibility to train it properly, otherwise you would encounter many problems with it down the road. Since these exotic monkeys for sale can be rather wild, however, they will require special training.

It is common for some people to care for at least one pet in their household. Although domestic animals like cats, dogs, and birds are the most frequent choices for pets, some like to keep things interesting by taking care of exotic animals. Did you know that celebrities like Mike Tyson have a tiger for a pet, or that Elvis Presley had a kangaroo, or that First Lady Grace Coolidge owned a pygmy hippo, a bear, two lion cubs, and a wallaby? If you’re looking for your very own exotic pet, perhaps you should try buying a pygmy marmoset for sale.
