I will be moving here in June, and I am a lover of exotic animals. I've raised lots of them, including reptiles, miniature deer, and wolves. What I haven't ever had, but really want, is a pet monkey.

I know there is a lot of controversy about the subject, and I really don't know anything about the status of the controversy in Belzie. Does anyone know if it is legal to keep monkeys as pets in Belize? I know howler monkeys are out of the question, but what about non-native species or something like that?

Why would you want to rear a non-native monkey in Belize?

Technically ALL wild animals in captivity require a permit from Forestry; unfortunately it's not well enforced.

Will your monkey be requiring a gun permit and will it be part of your stage hypnotism act?

Monkeys don't make the best pets (nasty little critters in captivity). It is possible as with anything in Belize.

I was just thinking I'd keep the monkey in my bar and let it drink Belikin all day.
