I think concern about parasites is over-stated. Been keeping various species of snakes for 35 years and it has never been a problem, at least not a problem that manifested itself to the point it caused difficulties. As I am sure you know, wild snakes eat all manner of things because they do not have the luxury of being selective. Not if they want survive and contribute to the gene pool. If I ever had a snake that appeared to have a parasite problem, I would not hesitate to take it to the vet, but it just has not happened.

I do not consider indigos expensive when you think about how few really nice ones are available. If you want expensive, check out some of the crazy paint jobs on ball pythons or western hognose. I guess expensive is a relative term. Paying $10,000 for an odd colored ball python seems expensive (and stupid) to me. $1,000 for a great eastern indigo, not so much.
