Abstract:Finally, Salmonella infections in slider turtles were not significantly affected by the host or habitat characteristics measured in this study. No turtles out of 100 were shedding Salmonella. Dissections of 73 turtles, however, revealed that turtles in the region had a moderate prevalence (11%) of Salmonella infection.
