When we got out two little monkeys they weren't hand tame and we've been slowly trying to tame them down a bit. Wasn't go to well until we sussed out they really like dandelions. Over a few weeks we've managed to get them to come to us be hand fed (they are in an aviary). Now they hurry over as soon as we appear and expect a juicy dandelion leaf. Yesterday, was the first day I sat on the floor in the aviary and they both came and sat on my leg while they ate the dandelion. (the male is friendlier than the female). So not quite hand tame yet but getting a lot closer. Hope they don't get bored of dandelions!
Thanks Steptoe, this site has been fantastic and invaluable in learning what to feed them. We give them a variety of fruit and veg and they will pick at all of it. The dandelions are way up on the favorite list, for example if i hold a bit of apple, or something else, don't get much response. If i hold out a dandelion leaf, they come bouncing over straight away. Will try dandelion flowers too, hadn't thought of that until I just read it on one of the threads.
