    Question Please Help me with a word

    Hi,

    Can anybody suggest an English word for what we call in India as "Madari", a person who pets monkeys or other wild animals and shows tricks with them in front of audience (Its quite similar to snake charmer, who pets snakes and shows tricks with snakes).

    Thanks

    "Animal trainer" is the only overall term I can think of.
    If it's a wild animal, 'tamer', as in 'lion-tamer'.
    Otherwise you'd need a specific term like 'snake charmer', 'organ grinder' (a person with a small hand organ and a monkey).
