Marmoset Information

While a marmoset monkey is definitely not your typical house pet, they are becoming increasingly popular around the world. Videos and photos of these tiny marmosets have been surfacing in different social media sites recently, inducing warm, fuzzy feelings that make it all the more tempting to buy your own pygmy marmoset for sale. No matter how small these adorable, furry creatures are, it seems that they have captured the hearts of Internet users and exotic pet lovers in a big way. Marmosets make great companions for anyone old enough to be responsible. They bond on people especially when they are socialized from day one by the expert breeder like Michael Poggi by having several staff members take turns on hand feeding and giving love to the baby monkey around the clock so that you don’t have to. At our company, we are different because we have 4 or 5 people taking turns hand feeding the babies at birth every 2 hours so you don’t have to do the hard part. This makes a baby monkey socialized and friendly rather than just tame to one person. That is why they are more expensive. Marmosets are the least expensive of all the monkeys and eat the least and cost the least to care for. They only eat a hand full of food a day and will not run up your food bill. They don’t need attention every day once they are teenagers after 4 months old. They are no longer getting milk from a syringe. They are only eating solid food. See proper diet on our site at  You can go on any vacation any time and have someone feed your pet twice a day while you are gone with no problem.

Despite their size, marmosets can leap up to 15 ft. up into the air. They are fairly quiet quiet and whistle once in a while. Not annoying. They chirp like a small bird when they are happy.

Monogamous Monkeys

As soon as pygmy marmosets reach sexual maturity, these primates choose one sole mate to be with for their entire lifetime. A small troop of monkeys, which consists of 2 to 15 individuals, is usually composed of the couple and their offspring.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

Marmosets are highly social animals and are often happy by the presence of other creatures, and can be a great companion to a friendly dog or even a friendly bird in your house. Marmosets are great with other animals if the baby pet monkey is introduced to your dog or other pets at a very young age when you first get your baby monkey. They love to interact with other people and pets if they were socialized by an expert breeder like Michael Poggi from Poggi’s animal house. He and his staff spend many hours socializing their baby monkeys so that when you get it, the baby would have been exposed to many people hand feeding it to give it a super tame personality. They love to watch what you are doing and will want to touch or play with whatever you have in your hands.

Marmosets are one of the most fascinating creatures in the animal kingdom, and you can learn a lot from these cute creatures by purchasing one in your own home.
