A thumb monkey is… well, it’s a monkey with thumbs. Or at least that’s what a lot of people assume when they hear the term. They picture the ultimate pet: one that can help them get dressed in the morning by putting on their shoes, help them drive by turning on the windshield wipers when it rains, and help them clean up after themselves by washing their own dishes. Unfortunately, there are no such animals as “thumb monkeys.” However, if you’re looking for a sophisticated pet to take care of your every need and meet your out-of-this-world expectations of what an exotic animal should be like, there are plenty of other options to choose from!
When you’re looking for a Thumb Monkey, you can’t go wrong with a reputable pet store. Pet stores generally have a good selection of thumb monkeys to choose from and their staff is knowledgeable about the needs of these unique creatures. One other thing that should definitely put your mind at ease when buying from a pet store is their return policy; unlike many other types of purchases, there are no restrictions on how long or where you need to keep your Thumb Monkey before returning it if it doesn’t work out for whatever reason.
Exotic Animal Shop
Exotic animal shops are the best place to go to find a thumb monkey. You can also get one in a pet store, but they don’t have as many options and will probably just give you some regular kind of monkey.
The exotic animal shop is the best place because they have all different kinds of monkeys that you would never see in any other store! It’s like they’re not even real animals! I once saw what looked like a thumb monkey but was actually an armadillo (I think), so be careful.
Ring around your eyes
For most people, buying a thumb monkey is not terribly complicated. There are many ways to do it, and the best option will depend on your particular situation:
- If you have access to a pet store or an exotic animal shop, then these are great places to find one.
- The circus is another obvious place where you can get a thumb monkey, as they are commonly used in the circus world for their amazing acrobatic skills (and ability to fit into little boxes).
- Zoos usually carry them too!
On the street
You can get a Thumb Monkey on the street.
In fact, many people have found their Thumb Monkeys at street vendors. Street vendors are people who sell things on the streets, like hot dogs or sunglasses (but not always). They can be found in big cities and small towns alike! If you’re lucky enough to live near one of these amazing places where they sell lots of different products ranging from food items to other stuff that has nothing to do with food including but not limited to flowers and jewelry (because this is important), then you should definitely check out what kind of animals they have for sale there too. If you don’t live near any place like this then it might be harder for you because I don’t know where else sells them except maybe exotic animal stores?
It’s not hard to find online stores that sell Thumb Monkeys. The important thing is to buy from a reputable retailer with a good reputation. Here are some things you can check:
- The store should offer a return policy and customer service that you’re comfortable with.
- You should be able to read reviews of their product and shipping quality online.
- Check out their satisfaction guarantee and warranty information before purchasing anything from them!
You may not be able to get a thumb monkey, but you can have fun trying.
Now that you know the pros, cons, and risks associated with buying a thumb monkey of your own, it’s time to decide whether or not this is something you want to do. If the answer is yes (and it should be), then you have to decide how to go about finding one. If you’ve never owned an animal before, how will you find someone trustworthy enough to get one from? Or maybe there are no reputable stores in your area that carry them. Maybe all the exotic pet shops don’t allow customers to buy them because they’re so hard to care for properly. The possibilities are endless!
If none of those options sound appealing, then consider getting creative and seeking out alternative methods:
- Check Craigslist ads for people trying to sell their pet monkeys (this might seem like a sketchy idea at first glance but remember—we’re talking about thumb monkeys here; chances are good that their owners aren’t exactly “pet” material).
I hope this post has helped you with your search for a thumb monkey. If not, at least I hope it’s made you laugh a little and given you something to think about the next time someone asks you where they can get one of their own
