Fantastic Book! - Russ S on 4/10/2018

I am new to having a Monkey for a companion and needed some information about how to go about it. This book gives that and more! I have a 3 m/o Squirrel Monkey and have so many questions! I was told to use Goat mil;k instead of formula and found a reference in the book explaining why. There are several other sections that I read immediately that help put me on the right track. First and foremost was that there is the existence of the Monkey Matters Magazine, which I have started reading as well! Buying and Receiving the book was easy and fast! I cannot express my gratitude more! Thanks, and you have a loyal customer for Monkey items from now on!
