    Yes, iguanas, like many reptiles, can carry Salmonella bacteria. Salmonella is a type of bacteria commonly found in the intestines of animals, including reptiles like iguanas. While iguanas may not necessarily show symptoms of Salmonella infection, they can still shed the bacteria in their feces. Handling or coming into contact with an iguana or its environment without proper hygiene practices can potentially lead to Salmonella transmission to humans. Therefore, it’s essential to wash hands thoroughly after handling reptiles or their habitats to minimize the risk of infection.
