Many people think that monkeys make cool and unique pets, but owning a monkey comes with a number of issues and concerns. Primarily, monkeys can transmit a wide range of diseases to humans and require regular testing to ensure they are healthy. On top of this, monkeys are exotic, undomesticated creatures, and they often struggle in captivity, especially as pets. In nearly every case, it's better for a monkey to live in the wild than in captivity.
