Hi!

I found this. Since the Canary Islands belong to Spain, they use the same pet laws as Spain.

I couldn't find a publish date on this, so don't know if it's up to date. You would have to verify the info.

Thanks so much! Unfortunately Spain is really weird with they're animal laws with specific regions allowing their own pet laws so in some regions animals are legal but I'm others you could go to prison

Well, it looks to me like most reptiles are OK if they don't get really big. It goes by weight as an adult.
I guess it all depends on what animal you're thinking about.

Who would enforce the animal laws in your area? Ask them. They would be the ones knocking on your door.

The police here will get you for anything! I have to have a certificate saying my russian is not from the wilds of Lanzarote!! Even though he couldn't survive her because there not enough greenery

Buy Tortoise statues and put them in the yard first to see if you get "stopped" be fun to watch what they do. 1614537906888.png

According to that article, Andalusia is extremely strict in regards to pets. But even there reptiles that do not weigh more than 2 kg are OK. The kind of geckos I'm familiar with certainly don't weigh nearly that much.

But Tom's idea is a good one...go talk to the locals.

In that case be very careful! You might mess up a word and get hauled off to jail! 🤣 I don't know how we'd bail you out!

On another topic...I watch the TV show 'How Did They Build That?' I missed part of it this week, but it was about the new concert hall where you live. I didn't see which island it's on, but you live in a spectacular place! Are you familiar with the building? It's white and shiny, and looks like nothing is holding it up. It has a wing-like top part. Just gorgeous!

Lol that's basically every big building here because legally buildings here have t0 be white apart from a few exception also I now live in Lanzarote and I haven't seen any construction so maybe it's somewhere else in the canary islands
