Unlabelled: Although adenoviruses (AdVs) have been found in a wide variety of reptiles, including numerous squamate species, turtles, and crocodiles, the number of reptilian adenovirus isolates is still scarce. The only fully sequenced reptilian adenovirus, snake adenovirus 1 (SnAdV-1), belongs to the Atadenovirus genus. Recently, two new atadenov...

In the years 2011-2012, a consensus nested polymerase chain reaction was used for the detection of adenovirus (AdV) infection in reptiles. During this screening, three new AdVs were detected. One of these viruses was detected in three lizards from a group of green striped tree dragons (Japalura splendida). Another was detected in a green anole (Ano...

A cell line was established from whole 6-8-week-old central bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps) embryos. Cells were mid-sized and showed an elongated and polymorphic form. The cell line grew in a monolayer and has been serially passaged for 17 passages at time of publication. This cell line has been used with samples from adenovirus polymerase chain...

Ranaviral disease in amphibians has been studied intensely during the last decade, as associated mass-mortality events are considered to be a global threat to wild animal populations. Several studies have also included other susceptible ectothermic vertebrates (fish and reptiles), but only very few cases of ranavirus infections in lizards have been...

In spring 2011, high mortality in association with skin lesions, systemic haemorrhages and necrosis occurred in a group of green striped tree dragons (Japalura splendida) which were imported from southwestern China via Florida to Germany. Infections with various endoparasites were diagnosed in coprological examinations. Different antiparasitic and...

Within two months in early summer six turtles from a mixed collection, including four European pond turtles (Emy orbicularis), and a Russian tortoise (Testudo horsfildii) died after transfer to a newly built pond. Two of the European pond turtles were submitted for pathohistological examination. Both had necrosis of the tip of the tail with brown c...

Respiratory diseases in boid snakes are common in captivity, but little information is available on their aetiology. This study was carried out to determine the occurrence of lung associated pathogens in boid snakes with and without respiratory signs and/or pneumonia. In total, 80 boid snakes of the families Boidae (n = 30) and Pythonidae (n = 50)...

In May 2011, 22 cloacal swabs and plasma samples were collected from 22 bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps) from a rescue center in Munich, Germany. All of the lizards swabbed were healthy throughout the observation period and did not show any clinical signs during the course of the study. The swabs were tested for the presence of ferlaviruses (Para...

A common agama (Agama agama) with clinical signs of dehydration, anorexia, and an abscess in the oral cavity was presented for medical examination. Bacteriological testing of an oral swab demonstrated the presence of Proteus vulgaris and Morganella morganii (Proteus morganii). A fecal examination showed oocysts of Choleoeimeria sp. and pinworm eggs...
