More information about this animal

Here at Urban Paws UK, we provide a range of Monkeys, that are transported and handled by a team of experts.

Animal acting ability

We work closely with highly experienced and specialised trainers that carry their own licence in accordance with the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976. We can provide monkeys to be present on set as well as monkeys that are trained to display certain behaviours and/or tricks. All of our exotic animals are from zoos and private collections. We only work with animals that are ethically sourced and cared for, whilst working within the animal welfare guidelines.

When working with our monkeys there are a lot of precautions set in place. We feel it is important to remind casting agents that they are still dangerous animals. Actors cannot always get hands-on with the monkeys but can be composited into scenes during post-production. There will always be multiple specialised handlers accompanying the monkey depending on the age and size of the animal.

Monkeys in media

Over the years there have been numerous instances with monkeys in tv shows and movies. They are an excellent animal to work with as they’re so intelligent and will follow commands well. You may remember appearances of monkeys from Friends, Ace Ventura, Raiders of the lost ark and many more.

Please contact us for more details, as we are positive we can meet your needs. We can supply a range of breeds and ages.
