you're absolutely right on the indigos in the wild. they need alot of room and it's being fragmented by development. the developers will tie fws in the courts indefinitely to prevent them from halting development.

as for the interstate commerce permit, i don't think there was any rhyme nor reason for it. fws wanted to regulate indigos but indigos ARE NOT LISTED AS ENDANGERED nationally so they couldn't apply the CITES 1 permit to it. so instead they used the interstate commerce permit which was never intended for this type of usage. kind of like what they did to the burmese python and attaching it to the lacey act which made no sense. when i start producing more indigos, i will discount out of state purchases by $100 to help the flow of genes around the country.
