Marmoset monkey owners in WA Washington State?

New Member

Hello, first post on this forum for me! I am the proud friend of an 8 year old male common marmoset living near Seattle, WA. I am wondering if anyone else around here has a marmoset, male or female. I would love to get in touch with you and share experiences and hopefully slowly introduce our little friends to each other. Rafiki is very affectionate once he becomes familiar with someone, and he has had free reign in our 5000 sq ft house and 2 acre tree/bush packed yard since he developed the balls to venture out on his own. He goes everywhere with me, and has never stopped learning new things and teaching me new things.

If you are close by, or are able to refer me to someone close by, I would be forever grateful. I am a 22 year old male recently out of the University of Washington. I have lived here in Kitsap County all my life. Pictures of Rafiki and/or I available upon request.

Thank you kindly,

We don't get a lot of primate people here but hope you'll stick around and help change that. Try the primate groups on Yahoo groups.

I don't have a monkey but I was from the same county growing up Smile

You probably won't find a lot of primate owners in Washington state as they've been banned in the state of Washington since 07' so the only people that have any primates in the state are those who had them grandfathered in. I'm located in Port Angeles, I would LOVE to meet your little rafiki! I used to own a bushbaby but I rehomed him out of state once the ban hit in 07' because he needed a girlfriend and I would never be able to provide one for him since it would be illegal for anymore to enter the state.
