Reptiles and Amphibians: Salmonella

Some reptiles and amphibians can make cool pets, but they can also be a source of illness. Reptiles (e.g., iguanas, turtles, snakes) and amphibians (e.g., frogs and toads) carry Salmonella.

Each year outbreaks of Salmonella occur as a result of individuals coming in contact with reptiles and/or amphibians that are carrying Salmonella.
