The whole purpose of a microchip is simply identification, nothing more. It provides a unique number that will forever more be associated with that animal. A data base is required to store the info about owners, genetics, etc. And as a breeder it costs about $10.00 each if you perform the procedure yourself, and about $60.00 from a vet. Sadly the herp hobby/industry is too busy being short sighted, focusing on the here and now and the next new morph rather than seeing even the near future.
