Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
The good news is that you can and no documentation is needed. Here's the exact statement from this site: http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/health_consumer/library/press/press76_en.html Latvia is an EU member.

"Pet reptiles, rodents, fish, birds, amphibia, arachnida and insects species are not affected by rabies or of no significance to the spreading of rabies. They may travel with their owner or another responsible person between EU Member States without health certificates or special identification."
