How likely are you to get salmonella from a lizard? Just curious

It's possible for them to carry it without it affecting them, but the risk of transmission to us is minimal. It's not something I worry about anymore. Just keep the enclosure clean, sanitize surfaces that come in contact with poop, and wash your hands regularly.
