Essentially, PIT tags act as a lifetime barcode for an individual animal, analogous to a Social Security number and, provided they can be scanned, are as reliable as a fingerprint .
The use of internal PIT tags began in the mid-1980s with scientists measuring fish movement, but has since been expanded to include the study of mammal, amphibians, reptile, bird, and invertebrate movement . PIT tags are also used by veterinarians for identifying household pets and for tracking livestock and zoo animals. A PIT tag consists of an integrated circuit chip, capacitor, and antenna coil encased in glass. PIT tags vary in size and shape depending on the study animal. Generally, tags are cylindrical in shape, about 8-32 mm long, and 1-4 mm in diameter.
