Chimpanzees – $60,000
Easily one of the smartest animals on our list, Chimpanzees are also one of the most closely related species to human beings.
They’re smart, intelligent and playful, making them a good choice for a pet.
There are two main species, both of which are endangered, the bonobo and common chimp.
It’s considered to be perfectly legal to own a chimp in several countries around the world, but if its a chimp you want, then you’re going to need to be prepared to spend upwards of $60,000 to purchase one, plus hundreds of dollars in monthly expenses.
