Anybody know anything about "Common Marmosets" as pets? I am seriously considering getting one. They are a very small monkey - but don't really look like a monkey. They are squirrel size and the type I want has large white tufts in thier ears.
I fell in love with one as a little girl and have wanted one for the last 16 years, but before I invest a large sum of money and take on a new addition to the family - I would like to know if they are as sweet as I remember. I know they can be a handful - but at least they are small and can be placed in a 6' x 6' cage while I am at work.
Hope one of you knows about these pets - I need some real first hand information. I know primates make awkward pets - but marmosets are very very small - my main concern is biting and how close they would bond with me. Am I better off getting 1 or 2? I don't want it to be lovey dovey with it's mate and hate me - but I don't want it to be lonely either.
Hope you all can help me out.
