Patience is a virtue! Don't keep posting on your own thread - give it time for people to see your post and then reply.

In the meantime, have a look through previous posts in this section to see if there is any relevant information.

Somewhere over the rainbow!:roll2:

Honestly, I think a 16 year old would be hard pushed to afford the animal and it's housing. Not to mention that the thing could live for 40 years.....what would you do with it and it's enclosure when you're at uni or in a rented houseshare? And the cost of upkeep is very high for someone on a low paid job. Maybe wait a bit til you're older and a bit more secure?

(p.s. I realise I'm making many assumptions here about your position in life, but I feel pretty safe that I'm not answering a millionaire tycoon here) ;)

We'll I live with my mum and I work as a plasterer and I get paid £250 a week from my dad so I have the money and I have many other exotic pets and I am ready to take on the responsibilities of this animal I just want to know where to find one.

hmmmm.....but you ain't gonna live with your mum forever, are you? Sometime soon(ish) you'll be struggling to find a rented property that will allow you to build an enclosure for a kinkajou! And once you do, £250 a week won't go very far;)

In all seriousness, no breeder in their right mind or with any sort of ethics would sell an animal like that to a minor. But keep on dreaming:2thumb:

Grow up, realise you cant just buy an animal like a bag of sweets
if you had done the research as you have claimed, you would of undoubtedly came across a breeder or two, in fact i know this, because these are one of the exotics i have done research into myself.

you've got the rest of your life ahead of you, theres no rush.

Kinkijous

I despair at the way people put down requests to be put in touch with breeders on here and other sites for that matter, the young lad has asked for advice and has come on here to find it, surely better trying to contact a breeder than using a pet shop ??

Not many kinkajous in pet shops, and I'm fairly sure that none of them would sell to a 16 yr old....nor would any breeder worth his salt.

The abrasiveness towards this young man is only a reflection of his attitude in other threads.

Nothing much is really going to come from ressurecting this thread so I think it's best locked.
