Quite an eye-catcher and conversation starter but not a pet for a non-professional. It is nocturnal and therefore not much of a companion for anyone with a normal sleeping pattern. Because of its nature it cannot run free in a house or yard so a cage is necessary which feels wrong. Quite friendly until it isn't. There were more than a few episodes of unprovoked biting and they have very sharp teeth. Cute, very cute and with its prehensile tail quite amazing to watch in a tree, but almost impossible to get down. Again, I would not recommend this to the average home. I had to give Tico to the Children's Zoo finally and he seems happy.
