Regardless of how well-intended, there are very few people who have the knowledge and/or resources to provide captive primates with adequate care for a lifetime. Baby primates entered into the 'pet' trade are robbed of the opportunity to be raised by their biological mothers, and as they mature their natural inclinations are stifled by attempts to mold them in to 'obedient pets'. When formerly dependent baby primates reach adolescence, they begin to exhibit aggression. In accordance with their natural behaviors, pet primates will bite and scratch. Often, the end result is displacement of the primate. Some primates are condemned to living the rest of their lives alone in a cage with little or no personal contact with other living beings.
