Wow! If you are looking for a baby monkey I suggest you look no further! You are not going to find anybody with more knowledgeable and as straightforward as Jim. I had 100 questions before, during and after getting my monkey and without hesitation was greeted with an enthusiastic and willing response. I figured he was probably tired of me calling with questions but, he said “ I’ll answer any questions you have, as many times as It takes, because I care about what happens to these monkeys after they leave my facility”. I highly recommend him and can’t wait to get our next baby. Thank you so much Jim! Oh! And we finally did decide to name him peanut!

We went there during listed hours to look at purchasing a monkey. No one was there, so we called the owner. He was in a different state and kept telling me I couldn't own a monkey in my state. I continued to tell him that it wasn't for me and he never gave me direct answers to my questions.

Jim educated me on what I needed before getting my monkey. He always updated me on a turn around time of me getting my monkey. Very informative and friendly! Great business we will definitely keep in touch!

Before anything I want to thank Jim Hammonds and his family for bringing us into his home and blessing us with such an amazing pet and new family member. Contrary to the blogs and new reports The Monkey Whisperer is a very professional and caring businessman. He opened up his ranch and doors with open arms, answered all my questions no matter the time of day and even had care packages for the marmoset monkey before it went home with us. He sat with us and got to know us and taught us how to feed our monkey. He spent quality time with my family and I and even showed us around the property. My daughters got the chance to meet camels, kangaroos, and all types of exotic animals they’ve never even seen before. I recommend everyone looking for an exotic pet to get with The Monkey Whisperer. I will be a returning customer. Many blessing Jim ???? - Rolando of Smokeline Bullies

I just wanted to share that my experience with Jim Hammonds has been wonderful.I just got my baby tamarin yesterday and she is beautiful. Prior to that he has been kind to deal with. Any time I called with questions he was more than helpful if I didn't get him directly he always called back quickly. Since I have gotten my baby he still has been available to help with any questions I have. He did not just forget about us once we were finished with the purchase.To which I am very grateful cause I'm sure I'll need his experience in the future. I would like to say thank you Jim for a helpful and caring experience for a first time owner. If I ever need another you'll be my guy.

I traveled over 3800 miles (round trip) to purchase a Capuchin Monkey from Jim. I asked a lot of questions and he seemed not to mind too much. His facility is clean and he has some really unique animals on site. My state has different …

Just received our baby Patas monkey from Jim and we are in love. Messaged him regarding the baby and within 24 hours he was all the way in Mississippi with us getting love. Amazing quality aniamls and amazing customer service. My card wasn’t accepted by the first payment system so he actually worked with me and spent a good deal of his own time figuring out a system I was familiar with. Great guy, very informative and follows up after sale to make sure everything is going great! We can’t wait to do business with him again.

I visited Florida last week to pick up my baby marmoset monkey. I have nothing but good things to say about Jim Hammonds the monkey whisperer! His house and property were very clean and the animals were well taken care of. My little guy is doing fantastic! Eating like a champion, very healthy and is becoming more social every day. I only wished I had bought one sooner! I definitely recommend him!

Jim was great! He kept us updated for month before we could pick up our sweet baby girl in Alabama. She’s been doing great So far! His facility was amazing. Lots of species of monkeys. He answered all our questions, showed us how/when to feed, and sent us feeding instructions. He was very professional. I would highly recommend Jim for your next baby!

Jim is fantastic and very knowledgeable! Very professional! We searched for months for someone who wasn't a fraud. It's scary buying an exotic animal and for the amount of money you're spending, being careful is priority. We picked up our 6-week old baby marmocet 2 days ago. He is so precious! I cannot say enough great things about Jim. Thank you Jim! We will be in touch soon to purchase our next baby!

I couldn't be happier! Jim is very professional and his facility is very clean. He is the real deal! I plan on purchasing many more animals from Jim. Even after the purchase, anytime I have a question, Jim is readily available and answers my questions in a timely manner. Thank you Jim! Ryan

Last week we received a healthy, lovable, and perfect little baby boy squirrel monkey. Jim's prices are reasonable, he answers all of your questions honestly and makes sure you know what you are doing before taking your pet home.

Called Jim and went down the next day. Picked up a red handed tamarin. Jim was very knowledgeable about his animals and was able to answer any questions that I had. It was a very simple process. Would do business again.

Bought a marmoset from Jim, the monkey whisper. He invited us into his house and gave us a tour of his beautiful grounds. Extremely clean environment and very healthy animals. I would recommend getting any animal especially a monkey from him. Very helpful and always there when you need anything. With very fair prices. Give him a call, you’ll be glad you did.

The service was so nice, we went back twice. The place was very well maintained and purchasing was a breeze. Jim was very professional and friendly during both purchases. He gave us a full tour of the facility and answered all of the questions we had. I actually have a breeder 4hrs closer to me than "THE MONKEY WHISPERER", but we feel much more confident purchasing from Jim. After the 1st purchase we were treated like family, so we look forward to making to trip so that we can visit all of the other exotic animals while making our purchase. Thank you and we will see you again very soon.
