I admitt it! lol I cant resist!
what is salminalli(sp.)
It is salmonella. It is a bacteria that exists in the intestines of most animals. It is transferred in the feces.
Here are some articals regarding salmonella. This is something all herp keepers need to be aware of.
How can you not kiss a face like this?!
Thesis is, nearly all herps carry at least one of the 2000+ strains of Salmonella. Not all strains are easily noticeable, identical, recognizable, one strain may not affect the animal but may affect you, and not all herps are tested, so pretty much it's a thesis.
Incidentally, salmonella cannot be removed from the tract of herps and this pretty much means, if your animal has it, it will continue to have it, meaning you will have to stay on guard, especially if you feed raw meats.

I don't kiss my herps. They don't deserve such torture!
I admit it i do kiss my snakes...once in awhile...mainly just kissy noises. My husband laughs at me anytime I put any of them close to my face. He always says, " I'm going to laugh so hard when they bite the end of your nose!"
I would never actually kiss a herp because of the risk of disease involved but I still love them lots.
