Monkeys
Western Australia

Should you get a pet monkey from Africa?

Since 1975, the Federal Quarantine Regulations (42CFR71.53) have restricted the importation of primates. Primates CAN NOT under any circumstance be imported to the US as pets. Also applies to re-importation of a primate originating in the US. They can only be imported for educational or research purposes.Contrary to what the person below wrote, monkeys can make good pets but under the right circumstances. They do require A LOT of work, time, and patience. It is not for everyone. If you are truly thinking of getting a monkey as a pet, do your RESEARCH first. It can be the best expereince of your life, or the worst. It all depends on how you educate yourself.

Visit www.petmonkeyinfo.com to learn more about monkeys as pets and what it takes to keep one happy, and healthy.

_________________________

No, not only is it not fair to keep a wild animal as a pet, but monkeys are not good pets at all. They are very smart animals, very closely related to the human. They are very curious as well. They can be very mean animals, they bite they pee and poop everywhere, they will pull your hair hit kick scratch. Like i said before they are very similar to humans so it would almost be like having a child except it would be vicious. Not all monkeys are like that but getting a wild one from Africa...yes it will be like that.

_________________________

I completely agree with the comment directly above my own. No, you should not get a pet monkey from Africa. Non-humans primates DO NOT make good pets. To obtain monkeys and other non-human primates, poachers often kill an infant's mother, and many other animals within that group. Infants are then taken into the illegal pet trade where they are kept in terrible conditions. Many animals suffer and die needlessly as a result of the illegal pet trade. Please do not encourage this sort of behaviour.

Why was Perth chosen to be the capital of Western Australia?

Perth was founded in 1829, and initially it was called the Swan River settlement.

In 1829, Captain Charles Fremantle was sent to take formal possession of the remainder of New Holland which had not already been claimed for Britain under the territory of New South Wales. On 2 May 1829, Captain Fremantle raised the Union Jack on the south head of the Swan River, thereby claiming the territory for Britain. The Swan River was the logical choice because it was a good port for ships.
