CITES 1 Permits ?

Hi , I know there are animals out there that require CITES 1 permits, and I've seen certain species for sale with these papers as well as without, I know its one of those things that allot of people donít even bother worrying about but if you do purchase an animal listed as CITES 1 is there any way of getting these permits without confessing you own an animal without having the paperwork? Do you just get a permit for "ownership of animals under CITES 1" or is it paper work for each individual animal? Does any body out there know allot about this stuff??

You can't get CITES permits after the fact. The permits are issued for the purposes of import and/or export. What you should get, at the time of purchase, is a copy of the permit. And keep it, so that in the future, you could pass it along to others in the future if you sell the animal or offspring. And yes, the permits are for individual animals, though in practice, if something is really common, there is no real way to keep track of them all, as the individual animals are not marked and correlated with the permits.

If you can't get a copy of a CITES permit for any Appendix I specimen, I'd be leery of buying it. At least get a receipt to show that you purchased it here. That might help if you get into trouble.
