  • Can you own a capuchin monkey as a pet in new jersey?

    Best answer: Maybe, many states strictly ban them. Where they can be permitted,it means demonstrating 1000 hours in primatology and there are requirements such as inspected keeping facilities, 'just to qualify' for a special permit.

    Best answer: Maybe, many states strictly ban them. Where they can be permitted,it means demonstrating 1000 hours in primatology and there are requirements such as inspected keeping facilities, 'just to qualify' for a special permit.
    What it means keeping a capuchin: Imagine a spoiled brat child on steroids with unlimited energy that has frequent temper tantrums.
    They can scratch like a cat, and draw blood in biting. They have the strength to pull a human ear off.
    While very affectionate and social, they need extended time out of cage and that means monkey proofing.
    They cannot be left alone more than 4 hours for their 20 year life so kiss vacations goodby. They are a 24/7 sort of pet.
    A simple cold will run over $1000 in qualified vet care. They escape and it is up a tree and not coming down til they are good and ready.
    How do I know this, we kept one from 1962 until his untimely death from lung infection 13 years later.
    As much as I would love the little $hit, I would never keep another. We even got lucky with a primatologist raised animal,properly weaned and separated from it family, most are not like that and suffer emotional issues.
    My take, monkeys and other primates just belong with their own kind in the wild.

  • Do you think animals ever try to be funny?

    Best answer: I don't think many try, no. They just are. But I think some studies revealed that when a dog does something stupid and gets a laughing response from its owner, they tend to try and repeat the behavior because they just know they are making their owner happy. A lot of funny things that animals do are rewarded... show more

    But I think some studies revealed that when a dog does something stupid and gets a laughing response from its owner, they tend to try and repeat the behavior because they just know they are making their owner happy. A lot of funny things that animals do are rewarded with kisses and praise, so some animals know to repeat these actions to receive love and praise.

  • Can I give my rabbit romaine lettuce?

    Best answer: Yes. Rabbits like all kinds of greens. Iceberg lettuce is not recommended because it is not very nutritious, but it isn't actually harmful.
    There are lots of back yard weeds that they can eat too.

  • Best pet to have in college?

    Best answer: If you have space, and can afford the cage, then consider a pair of rats, guinea pigs, or even a ferret. The cages can be expensive though. Less expensive would be a hamster. Something often overlooked is a pair of budgies - they are actually very interactive and social pets, and can be taught tricks. A large... show more
    Best answer: If you have space, and can afford the cage, then consider a pair of rats, guinea pigs, or even a ferret. The cages can be expensive though. Less expensive would be a hamster. Something often overlooked is a pair of budgies - they are actually very interactive and social pets, and can be taught tricks. A large cage for them isn't cheap, but within your budget. All pets require the initial set up costs and food, and even the occasional vet visit. Before selecting a pet, make sure that there is a vet in your area that can see it and treat it as necessary.

  • Is it bad to have a pet wolf?

    I’m 14 and I’ve been living with my big brother for three years now. It’s out in the country and he has about ten acres and he has a pet wolf for almost 10 years now.

    I’m 14 and I’ve been living with my big brother for three years now. It’s out in the country and he has about ten acres and he has a pet wolf for almost 10 years now. When I moved in he told me a lot about it and here you have to get a permit but he went through that process and got the wild wolf puppy. He says that animals should be free to be wild so he never got the wolf neutered and he gets to go outside whenever he wants and sometimes he’s gone for days. My big brother has goats and a lot of chickens and ducks and geese here but he said he taught the wolf not to eat them and sometimes when he comes back other wolves come to cuz there’s a lot of wild wolves here in these woods and sometimes baby ones come to.

    I currently own 4 medium sized dogs, a Turtle, 2 Dwarf sized hamsters (in separate 40 gallon tanks don't come after me) and a Small Fish tank with two Tetra fish. In the past ive had more hamsters, a snail, Crabs, Hermit Crabs, and another outdoor tortoise. Im looking for an animal I can snuggle with that isnt too big that I can keep in my room. I dont have that large of a room and its already decently full with one of the large metal 'Garage' shelves holding the 3 large tanks I keep my smaller animals in with the top shelf being used for storage, a Twin sized captain bed (since a full takes up too much space, a Desk that can fold into an easel, and a small dresser on the side. Sorry for the extra info I guess im just trying to give as many details as possible. Ive thought of a Rabbit and realized that not owning one (as much as I want one) is the responsible option. I havent tried Guinea Pigs and Ferrets are adorable (and funny as hell) however I just have no clue! Reminder that I have dogs and I dont want anything that would be in the tiniest percentage of unhappy/scared. Thanks y'all!

  • We think our rabbit is pregnant?

    Best answer: They should have both been fixed. I had two "bucks" who were labeled with a B on their ears at the pet store. Well, they were Netherland Dwarfs. Took them to be fixed anyway. They were Does (females). No wonder they didn't get along. Your mom needs to get the female fixed now so they get along,... show more

They were Does (females). No wonder they didn't get along. Your mom needs to get the female fixed now so they get along, there won't be babies every 5 minutes and the female doesn't die of uterine cancer by the age of 3. Boys also stink up the house sometimes with their own skunky smell (it's like a cat spraying territory but skunky and sometimes like black tar that won't come off of the cage floor, etc).

  • Do animals photographed by the ASPCA get helped and adopted by families?

    I am a proud donator to the ASPCA and I wish well for all animals who are in cruel situations and environments. It breaks my heart to the fact of how humans mentally and physically abuse animals in this world we live in.

  • So I found a rabbit and it has really bad sore jocks, I've had him for 3 days now and want to take him to the vet ?

    Best answer: I'm assuming this is a domestic rabbit? Where did you find it? If you take it to a vet, they can check to see if bunny has been chipped. If so, that will tell who the owner is. But few rabbits are chipped (usually just those from a rabbit rescue). If there is no chip, the vet has no say as to whether or not... show more

  • Is my rabbit lonely/depressed?

    I was given a rabbit for Christmas as a surprise and I love him! He’s just over 3 months old so he’s very playful and curious- however I worry about this because I’m not always at home so I don’t always time to let him run around and play/give him affection. I’ve also heard rabbits get depressed if they don’t have another rabbit to play with. I let him out when I’m home (he’s a house bunny) but he scratches on the cage, trying to get out when I put him back. Wondered if anyone had any advice/tips on how to make sure a rabbit has the best life and to stop them getting bored/feeling lonely?? Will I have to give him up?? How much attention are rabbits supposed to get?

  • Should I let my rabbit try and bond with are new pup or it's best to just keep them away from each other?

    Should I let my rabbit try and bond with are new pup or it's best to just keep them away from each other?

    Best answer: Depends on the innate temperament (breed plays a factor) of your dog. However, since your pup is still young, it would still be a good idea to teach him proper behavior near the rabbit. This means that if he growls, he gets corrected.

    Best answer: Depends on the innate temperament (breed plays a factor) of your dog. However, since your pup is still young, it would still be a good idea to teach him proper behavior near the rabbit. This means that if he growls, he gets corrected. He has to be *taught* what behavior is expected of him otherwise he will just go on instinct.

    That said, all of my dogs over the years have been trained to get along with my rabbits. There is a method I have used successfully to do this which is explained in detail here:
    http://rabbitsindoors.weebly.com/introdu...

    Just keep in mind... *you* have to teach the dog how to behave near the rabbit, and... the genetic disposition of your dog will determine if there is too much prey drive to overcome.

    [Attached is photo of our puppy learning to get along with our rabbit. That dog is now almost 10 years old and has gotten along with subsequent rabbits.]
