  As per the Livestock Census of 2019, current goat population in India is about 148 million and that of pigs are 9.06 million in India. They are identified using physical tagging, stenciling, tattooing, branding, etc. that can easily be manipulated extravagantly creating opportunities for poachers and middle men to poach the animals for their bones, meat, etc. and illegal transfer across international borders. However, to prevent this, a unique, non-invasive, non-manipulative method of identification based on behavioral patterns must be incorporated, also termed as biometrics. Such unique character trait or ‘fingerprints’ become a mandate in the process of unique animal identification. Several character traits have been examined and investigated to develop the unique identification and has later been proved that irises of goats and auricular vein pattern of pigs have been found to be the most feasible one in such identification.
