For some owning a simple pet is not only having a pet, but having another part of the family. And for some, having a luxurious and expensive pet is how they want their pets. However, this does not mean that those pets are for show only, they are loved and cared for the same way any pet should be. Furthermore, some pets have been genetically nurtured to perfection and that is why the can cost a pretty penny. l Image
Unfortunately though, for some species because of their intricate way of breeding and gene manipulation, they are worth more than a normal pet is worth. Also, do not forget that exotic pets also have exotic needs and wants, which you will have to fulfill. Make sure that if you can afford an exotic pet, that you can also afford its care.
The White Tufted Marmoset
Although they are the world’s smallest monkeys and they are extremely hard to train, but Marmosets are unique and extremely cute. They come from the Amazon basin and unfortunately they are very susceptible to human diseases, so if you are planning on owning one, make sure that you will take good care of it, and that you will visit a veterinarian regularly for checkups.
Moreover, make sure that if you ever have Marmosets that you have a big garden so that they can enjoy their freedom and swing around freely as if they were at home. l Image

Being that they are of mixed of domesticated and wildlife origin, they require a special diet and nutrition. Most owners are combining a raw/canned food diet, exclusively protein based (like a combo of raw lamb and/or Advance cat food). Bengali cats are worth the effort. l Image
