Hello, I've been trying to find some information on this topic, but didn't get the answer. Do you need and if yes, what kind of documents do you need to legaly keep T's, breed them, sell them?
Well, you should know the ones needed (if needed, I mean) for Lithuania, your nation, because I hardly doubt others will know.
Here in Italy you need the CITES papers only when you breed, sell, and (obviously) keep a CITES protected animal (in this case, arachnids).
You need this, otherwise you are considered a smuggler:

The CITES Italian authorities that works in the 'Corpo Forestale dello Stato' provide the breeder everything, following the whole process.
As far as I know, however, in general (in Europe) nothing particular is asked to have as mandatory for the keeper/seller.
No. You can keep (without mandatory sort of permits) all the T's you want.By the way, do you just come to authorities and tell them that you have a pet and you want to have CITES for it?
