Salmonella

Salmonella is not visible to the naked eye. It is a microscopic disease that rarely affects lizards. However, it is possible to get it yourself from your lizard and its enclosure.

The only way to prevent it is to constantly provide a thoroughly clean enclosure. Anything you use to clean the enclosure, and everything in the enclosure, must also be thoroughly cleaned. Salmonella contamination in your lizard can be found through a fecal examination by your veterinarian.
