"Outbreak" - This 1995 movie showed what happens after a African monkey with a deadly virus is smuggled into the U.S. It was scary then, and it's still scary now.

Recently I went to the Dominican Republic. I loved it and can’t wait to go back. I also got a chance to be around my new friend the squirrel monkey. After being around one, I wanted one. I started to see if they would be good as pets.

Well, they are very smart and intelligent. The squirrel monkey has the largest brain-to-head ratio of monkeys. They are extremely active and need constant attention. Think of a child’s needs. They have too much energy lol and they need SPACE! Their diet is mostly fruit like kiwi, strawberries, apples, and nuts. They are territorial so they are gonna mess up your walls with something like food or feces. They are cute to have on your shoulder or your head but as a pet may be different. If kids get on your nerves then a squirrel monkey will tear your nerves up. Want one? You’ll pay about 8,900 for him here in the states.
