Dear Dustin,
this is a curious "catch 22" of the government, the permit application clearly states you must have the permit prior to the sale, yet you probably won't be able to fill it out until you have virtually set up the sale... thus, I suggest you locate a breeder/source, and they will assist you with their part of the permit, and then you submit it. You will wait for a varied amount of time, often 4-12 weeks, and then it arrives. Then you may proceed with the transportation and completion of the sale. In the mean time, cheques have cleared, the breeder gets your hatchling well established etc. I have sold indigos to Texans, and it went smoothly.
It would be wise to contact Texas Parks & Wildlife Wildlife Permits coordinator 4200 Smith School Rd. Austin, TX 78744 (512) 389-4491 In the past, a very nice woman named Karen Pianka was the permit coordinator but it has been awhile...Since Texas has restictions on possession of native Texas D.c.errebenus indigos, it is important to get them to stipulate that possession of D. couperi (or D. c. couperi) are not so restricted. Try to get it in writing if you can...

USFWS is responsible for the interstate permit, and they play hardball, so do it correctly, dot your I's and cross your T's. good luck, it is easier than it sounds, it requires patience. Good Luck, you will have fun once it is done, Vic
