  • Weve all seen them: cute, cuddly, fuzzy, and practically irresistible baby monkeys. What a show for guests- swinging from the ceiling, feeding themselves with their opposable thumbs, doing back flips, and clapping; all so sweet and innocent.

    Raising a baby monkey as a pet does not change its natural and inherent instinct to develop into a wild animal. As they grow into adolescences their hormones and intellect make for extremely challenging and dangerous situations. And at this stage, depriving a monkey of normal social interac-tions and relationships with its own kind can lead to further problems for the monkey AND for its owner.

    In a part of the world where monkeys are ram-pant, many people decide to take them in as pets. Often the mother will be killed by poachers and

    the baby sold. This situation is usually the case for ending up with a pet monkey. Someone will either buy it (in order to rescue it) or forcefully take it from said poachers and decide that they can give it the care it needs instead of opting for the more respon-sible approach of turning it over to a rescue center.

    Monkeys, like all animals, have different person-alities. Some can be a bit more docile while others are extremely aggressive resorting to biting, de-stroying property, and throwing their own feces. They can transmit a variety of diseases to humans such as Yellow Fever, falciparum malaria , Kyasanur Forest disease, Tanapox, Mayaro virus, tuberculo-sis, herpes-B negative, and of course, rabies. (2nd-chance.info)

    So, in case you were in the market for a monkey, I certainly hope youve changed your mind. You wont be dealing with Curious George.

    Todos los hemos visto: monos bebs lindos, adorables y prcticamente irresis-tibles. Son un show para los invitados al balancearse por el techo, alimentndose ellos mismos con sus pulgares oponibles, haciendo saltos y aplaudiendo; todos muy dulces e inocentes.

    El criar un beb mono como mascota no cambia su instinto natural e inheren-te a desarrollarse como un animal salvaje. Cuando crecen en la adolescencia sus hor-monas e intelecto los llevan a situaciones extremadamente desafiantes y peligrosas. Y en esta etapa, el privar a un mono de in-teracciones y relaciones sociales normales con su propia especie puede causar an ms problemas al mono Y a su dueo.

    En partes del mundo donde los monos son abundantes, muchas personas deciden tomarlos como mascotas. Usualmente su madre es asesinada por cazadores y los be-bs son vendidos. Esta situacin es usual-mente el caso en el que se termina con un mono como mascota. Alguien lo compra (para rescatarlo) o lo toma forzosamente de dichos cazadores y decide que puede

    proveerle el cuidado que requieren en lu-gar de optar por lo ms responsable que es entregarlo en un centro de rescate.

    Los monos, como todos los animales, tienen diferentes personalidades. Algu-nos pueden ser ms dciles mientras que otros son extremadamente agresivos recu-rriendo a morder, destruir cosas y tirar sus propias heces. Ellos pueden transmitir una variedad de enfermedades a los humanos, tal como la fiebre amarilla, plasmodium falciparum, la Enfermedad de la selva de Kyasanur, Tanapox, el virus mayaro, tuberculosis, herpes-B negativo y rabia. (2ndchance.info)

    Entonces, en caso que ests buscando un mono, yo espero que cambies de parecer. No vas a estar lidiando con Jorge el Curio-so.

    Si sabes de un mono que necesite ser res-catado y reintroducido a su habitad natu-ral, por favor contacta a Elena Castejon en el Centro de Rescate del Summit y ella se encargar de manejarlo apropiadamente y transportarlo a sus instalaciones en la ciu-dad de Panam.
