    Does anyone know the UK laws on owning a primate as a pet?

    I dont want one!

    But I know of a family that have some in cages in their garden, and they said that you dont need a license to own them, but I think that they may be wrong.

    Anyway, I cant seem to find much about it online, and just wondered if anyone here knew

    It's illegal to keep primates as pets in the UK. The only one I *think* you can keep is a marmoset monkey, but you need to get clearance and permission off loads of people.

    dunno about the laws but i think it depends on the situation. i used to know people who had monkeys in a cage in their garden which kind of went through a hoel into the house. but i think that that had something to do with a zoo... i can't remember :s:. i doubt it's legal.

    You defiantly need to have a licence to own primates-contact the police or RSPCA about the situation.
