Default Importing amphibians

I intend visiting Houton this year and would like to know if anyone has a difinitive answer as to what paperwork is required to carry CITES II amphibians across the borders.
I have read many posts on the subject and am more confused than ever.
PS still awaiting reply from DEFRA

None. Once in the last EU, there are no restrictions on movement between EU states. The same is the case for Annex A species. I see that you are referring to Appendix II - you need to check the EU regulations, which use Annexes. Some App II (which would be Annex B) are elevated to Annex A so require valid A10 certificates to be sold or bought. For example, Javelin sand boas are an Annex B species throughout the world, but in the EU are in Annex A, the same as Appendix I species.

Provided the animals are either CB or were lawfully imported then you don't need any other paperwork. Don't forget that all boa and python species, apart from a tiny number which are Annex A, are all Annex B, and no documents are needed.

If you want peace of mind, ask for a receipt with the seller's details, confirming that it's captive bred.
