A man in a hat gets on a plane in Lima, Peru, passes through customs in Florida, and travels to New York. Only during that flight do passengers finally inquire: Do you know you have a monkey on your head. But airport police had a few questions of their own when the man landed.

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
A man in a hat gets on a plane in Lima, Peru, goes through customs in Florida and travels on to New York. During that flight, several passengers inquire - do you know you have a monkey on your head? Airport police had a few questions when the man landed with a marmoset, normally at home in the jungle. Spirit Airlines reports that once the monkey popped out from under the hat, man and monkey sat together quietly for the rest of the flight.
