Bidstick Auctioning a Real Live Marmoset?! – Are they Licensed by the USDA?


Right now penny auction is supposedly auctioning the oddest thing we have yet to see on a penny auction, a real live Marmoset.

The header reads, “ – Selling Marmoset at huge discounts”

20110603-083935.jpg Bidstick is allegedly responsible for using our trademark on YouTube, the shilled review site pennyauctioninvestigator and, blatant TM infringement filled with libel.

But are they really auctioning a real live mammal? Does BidStick hold a U.S.D.A. license to sell marmosets?

“A permit or license is not needed to own a marmoset or tamarin, however, a U.S.D.A. license is required to breed, exhibit or sell them. A prospective owner should inquire to ensure that the breeder or dealer selling monkeys has the necessary license. Disreputable dealers and breeders will sell primates to capitalize on profit opportunities. Anyone selling nonhuman primates without a license should be immediately reported to the U.S.D.A. Different states may have their own laws regarding ownership of non-human primates (NHPs). Also, counties may have their own laws that can supercede state laws regarding NHP ownership. It is always advisable for a prospective owner to ensure that owning a NHP is legal in the area in which they reside.

Marmosets and tamarins are beautiful, intelligent monkeys. Even so – unless a family has owned monkeys before – they should be discouraged from purchasing a callitrichid as a pet. Even with past experience, such a decision should not be undertaken lightly. If a client has decided to purchase a monkey, suggest they consider purchasing an unrelated pair and eventually breed them. That way they can enjoy the infants and juveniles, and when they outgrow their cuteness, they can contribute to conservation efforts.” – Via

Selling non-humane primates without a U.S.D.A. license is a violation of the Animal Welfare Act.

From the description:

“Common Marmoset : Lifespan: 7-20 years Length: Head + Body : 7-12 inches (18-30 cm) Tail : 7-16 inches (17-40 cm) Weight: 10-18 ounces (300-500 grams) Geoffroy’s Marmoset : Lifespan: 7-16 years Length: Head + Body : 7-8 inches (18-20 cm) Tail : 9-11 inches (23-29 cm) Weight: 10-12 ounces (300-360 grams)

They come with starter food and training for you if needed. They are all guaranteed healthy. Bring your monkey home, play with him/her and be sure to study his/her actions to eventually understand what he/she wants.

Until you learn his/her language, and he/she learns yours, keep putting supplies like food or toys in front of him/her until he/she calms down. The best food for monkeys are exactly what you eat. Fruits, vegetables, pasta, breads and rice. Do not feed them chocolate, avocado or other pet foods. Begin training the monkey.

Say his/her name often when feeding, or offering him/her a toy. Also, say his/her name when petting and loving him/her. When he/she responds to his/her name, give him/her a treat and praise him/her. When saying a command, act out how you want the monkey to act! So if you say “dance,” start hopping around! When he/she learns a trick, give him/her treats and praise him/her!

Start with simple commands like “sit” and “stay”. Generally, monkeys are not “tricksters”. Sit would be a good command, but getting a monkey to stay in one place for more than a few seconds would be quite a feat. Final Bidder is aware t they are responsible for this pet”

— As an animal lover, I’m appalled by this display.

That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more pops over the last years. Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you already know about the question. Sexual dysfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical reason, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is something to that “headache” saying after all.

    This is truly disgusting. I hope they lose business for treating animals in such a cruel way. Is this even legal? God only knows what kind of weirdo will end up with this poor creature – who will be traumatized for sure. This in an EXOTIC animal and is not meant to be a PET!!!
