Well, I didn't get the permit, but I think I got something just as good... from Angela Williams of FL FWC:

"The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Division of Habitat and
Species Conservation, Species Conservation Planning Section has reviewed your
application dated 11/28/2012 requesting authorization to possess an Eastern indigo
snake under a Scientific Collecting permit.
Your application requests authorization to take or incidentally take species that are
protected by the USFWS Endangered Species Act (ESA). Previous rules required
both a state [FWC] permit as well as a federal [USFWS] permit for ESA species
occurring in Florida. According to newly revised Rule 68A- 27, Florida Administrative
Code (F.A.C.), effective November 8, 2010, “… take of Federally designated
Endangered and Threatened Species [does] not require a permit from the Commission
[FWC] when authorized by [the federal agency] …” Hence, you are no longer
required to obtain a state [FWC] permit from this office for any of the targeted ESA
species."

In regards to Federal permissions, I also have an email from Cam Shaw from when I originally initiated the FL permit app informing me that the Fed did not require a permit for such a circumstance either. He directed me to Florida FWC.
