I feel in love that first time that I saw a picture of these cuties! But after I did some research, I found out that not only are they expensive to purchase but also expensive to take care of. The average cost to purchase a Pygmy Marmoset is about $3,000 and they suggest that you buy more than one since they are naturally a pack animal. The average upkeep is about $300 a week plus vet care. That is, if you can find a vet close to you that will treat such a small primate!
