Legality of owning insects

Please note that keeping tropical insects as pets is not allowed in some countries, especially not in Canada, New Zealand and the United States. Most European countries do not have laws against keeping non-endemic insects as pets, though some countries limit the import of live animals.

Make sure to properly search for any legal limitations to keeping insects in your country before starting this beautiful hobby.
