In the movies, kissing a frog can result in a prince. But, as the disclaimer often says, “Do not try this at home.” Frogs, like all amphibians, can be a source of Salmonella infections in people. The same is true for reptiles, like turtles or snakes. Instead of a prince, improper handling of amphibians and reptiles – and that includes kissing a frog – can result in a nasty illness. Dr. Mark Mitchell, associate professor of zoological medicine at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, talks about amphibians, reptiles, and Salmonella.
