Salmonella and Reptiles

Almost all reptiles carry Salmonella. They carry this bacterium in their intestinal tract and have it in their stool. The Salmonella bacterium causes extreme illness and sometimes death in humans, livestock and domesticated pets.

Salmonella is passed from reptile to human. Anything that has come in contact with the reptiles stool is contaminated. Thus includes the reptile’s food and toys.

Many of the cases of Salmonella in humans have been mild. They display symptoms of diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. If the infection makes it to the bloodstream, bone marrow and nervous system, it will lead to extreme, possibly fatal, illness.
