Marcial-- First of all, Alligator Snappers have state protection, not Federal (they aren't on the U.S. Endangered Species List). Second of all, they are protected in every state where they naturally ocurr in the wild with the exception of one, Louisianna, which has a trapping season for them. States where they don't live (for the most part) don't care if you have an Alligator Snapper because they don't live in their state...they care about the protected species that naturally live in their states. So if you're buying a legal adult, it either originally came from Louisianna or it came from one of the other states where they live before they became a protected species. If you're buying a hatchling, you're buying one that has come from the dozens of people that are captive breeding them. I hope that helps! --Maxx
