    Yes, lizards, including reptiles like turtles and iguanas, can carry Salmonella bacteria. These bacteria can be found in their feces and on their skin. Handling reptiles or coming into contact with surfaces contaminated with their feces can lead to Salmonella infection in humans. It’s important to wash hands thoroughly after handling reptiles or cleaning their habitats to prevent the spread of Salmonella bacteria and reduce the risk of infection.
