Bearded dragons can carry Salmonella germs in their droppings, even if they look healthy and clean. These germs can easily spread to their bodies and anywhere in the area where they live and roam. These germs can easily spread to their bodies, habitats, and anything in the area where they live. Bearded dragons are very friendly and rarely show aggressive behavior.
However, they carry bacteria, can carry viruses and parasites that can be transmitted to people who have a weak immune system, including pregnant women and young children. Things can get a little “complicated” for those with bearded dragons as pets. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), bearded dragons appear to be the source of a new Salmonella outbreak that has already left at least 44 people sick and 15 hospitalized in 25 states. Did you know that even though Australia banned the export of wild bearded dragons, humans began breeding lizards in the United States? So if you have a bearded dragon that exhibits aggressive behavior, I recommend that you learn about body language or bearded dragons.
After all, bearded dragons don't usually carry small bottles of hand sanitizer or sing “Happy Birthday” while washing their hands. I just wanted to make you aware of what could happen, but the truth is that there aren't many people I know who get sick from bearded dragons. Salmonella can be present even in healthy bearded dragons, but one who is sick may have a higher concentration of bacteria in their digestive system. Some bearded dragons are quite shy and want to be left alone, especially bearded dragons who recently moved to a new home may show defensive behavior.
That's why it's highly recommended to wash your hands with warm soapy water every time you touch your bearded dragon or clean the terrarium. So the first thing you should think about is whether bearded dragons show any aggressive behavior that could be dangerous for me or my family. Bearded dragons and other reptiles can carry salmonella bacteria on their skin, and the bacteria can even be found in animal enclosures. Salmonella can be transmitted simply by holding them, cleaning their enclosures in a sink, allowing them to walk on floors or surfaces, or allowing children to touch and then touch their mouths.
This way, you can avoid being bitten or hit by the tail of a bearded dragon and minimize the risk of harm to you and your family. Bearded dragons can have several unique problems; understanding these issues will allow you to better care for your pet and minimize future health care problems.
