Where can I find Finger Monkeys? If you want to see them in their natural habitat, the above countries are where these tiny creatures naturally live.

The actual name for the specie is Cebuella pygmaea, and they are known by the following names:

  • pygmy marmoset
  • finger monkeys
  • dwarf monkeys
The tiny primate weighs less than an orange or apple, and don't usually grow any bigger than 14 inches.

Pet Finger Monkeys Because they're so tiny and cute, Finger Monkeys are one of the most in-demand exotic pets.

However, obtaining one would be a lot more difficult than you'd think!

In most countries, you'd be forbidden to import them because of their controlled status. And even if you were able to find a reliable source on the black market, they'd probably set you back a few thousand dollars exactly because they are so hard to come across.

As adults, they are also notoriously difficult to look after - and are more than capable of using their sharp claws and teeth.

My suggestion would be to either visit them at the zoo, or check out the following sites for some more information (and some very cute pictures!):

Finger Monkeys Live in tropical rain forests in boughs or a hole in a tree trunk, or branches, and build spherical nests.
