BrilandkidYes there were some on Briland kept by Mr Ames I believe they were spider species. They sure could make a rukers (noise) do not know what really happen to them. Has kids we would skip school to go and see them, they were very intertaing. Mr Ames would also allow them in his house or ride them in his truck, I think they were the trained ones. Do not know what happen to them.

TowarBack in the 50s and 60s Snake Eames had several monkeys at his home, although they were caged. I don't know what happened to them when he died. Or if he still had them when he died.

KimberlyMonkeys? On Briland? I've heard of them in the Florida keys, but never all of the way over here. (You sure that Sam Barry wasn't mixing the margaritas back then??)
