    Yes, I'd like a red-handed tamarin colony. I wouldn't own anything larger than a squirrel monkey. Yes, there is a biting risk. They are best kept without excessive interaction.

    Depends on the breed. Chimps are dangerous. The ones you see on TV or movies are young females. They grow strong and crazy enough to kill people. Actually, they are apes not monkeys.

    Capucians are trainable and human like in their gestures. Still, a lot of work.

    Most others are trouble.

    Sure, if I had the time. A lot of the smaller species (Marmosets, Tamarins, ect) are **relativitely** easy to care for.
