Marmoset monkey – Phuket

 

Marmoset - Phuket

 

This Marmoset monkey is someone’s pet. We did not expect to meet such a creature in the context in which we found him. Five years ago, his owner paid 45,000 Thai Baht for him, the equivalent of 1,800 Australian dollars. Illicit trade in exotic animals is alive and well.
