hey rob, good to see you here.

just like the game of telephone, i think what we may be seeing here is a case of misunderstanding. i have received eastern indigos from three different individuals who also happen to work (or worked in the past) at zoological gardens, including one in PA. however, these folks kept and bred indigos privately, at home, where they live, not at the zoo. it has only been about 10 years since the price for an eastern hatchling was around $500. though taken literally, the story certainly sounds like BS, but with a slight change in wording the story may be true -- "10 years ago i bought an eastern indigo hatchling from a guy in PA who worked at a zoo." stories often get misconstrued.
