I have known for some time that Florida requires PIT tags in most reptiles, however, they do not enforce it in any way, and nobody (pet shops, breeders, etc) ever makes any mention of it.
a Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT for short) is a small tag, about the size of a grain of rice that is injected under the skin. All it really is is a small amount of information, that being a bar code or number than is stored in a database, that can be accessed when scanned. The bar code would then be registered in the name of the owner of the animal.
The point of this is so that (ideally) all of the residents here would get their pets tagged, and then any picked up in the everglades could be traced back to their owners, for proper blame and fines.
In my wish to be a good and law abiding citizen, and herp owner, I am considering doing this. I am just wondering if anyone has any advice, opinions, or experience with this. Any input is welcome.
