Life of Benji – Exotic Animal Auction

September 22nd, 2010

We’re ready to go to the exotic animal auction.  For the last few weeks I’ve been working really hard building on indoor enclosure in our house.  My wife was nice enough to give up her office space which allowed me to build a rather large monkey room in our house.  For once I really wanted to be prepared.  The indoor enclosure was huge for the pair of marmosets we were about to buy.

It took us 3 ½ hours to get to the exotic animal auction.  I’m not all that crazy about these auctions but the fact remains that you can really purchase exotic animals at a much lower price.  I haven’t been this nervous in a long time because purchasing a primate is a big deal.  Next up are the marmosets.  For once they have a rather large collection of marmosets for sale.  Suddenly doubt sets in.
