    NEW YORK (AP) - A man will have to find a way to live without his prize possessions - six little monkeys and a tarantula.

    The two marmosets, two capuchins, two squirrel monkeys and the spider were confiscated from the home of Orlando Lopez on Tuesday, leaving him brokenhearted.

    "They need to be swinging from trees," Pastore said Wednesday of the monkeys, none of which weighed more than a kilogram.

    Lopez was allowed to keep his Great Dane, a Chihuahua, a cat and a tank of fish. He was issued a summons to appear before the environmental commission.

    An anonymous caller tipped off animal control authorities that Lopez was keeping the animals in his apartment in Inwood, on the northern tip of Manhattan. City law forbids exotic animals as pets, and tarantulas are considered a health code violation.
