This idea sounds a bit far-fetched to me.Indigo
snakes are a federally protected species, so unless
you have the appropriate Fish and Wildlife issued
permits, you are prohibited from having one. If you
truly work for a legitimate zoo, that would not be
a problem to acquire one through the institution,
however, the snake would have to remain that zoo's
property. You can use protected species for educational purposes. If you wish to own your own,
you'll have to find a herpetoculturalist who raises
them and they're VERY expensive captive-bred.And
then you must always retain the paperwork that proves the animal was born in captivity just incase
you get questioned by a Fish and Wildlife Officer;
otherwise you can be slapped with a big fine.
