Can having reptiles or amphibians in the house be a problem if you have a young baby?
Reptiles such as lizards, turtles and snakes, and amphibians such as frogs, can carry Salmonella bacteria which can cause serious illness in small children. You may wish to remove them from the house, or take great care with hygiene after handling these animals, to help reduce the risk of infection.
