Can BD get Cryptosporidium or just Geckos? If so is it just as deadly in BDs?

From my understanding Beardies can get it and there is no cure or wasn't a year ago. I researched it when I got my leo.

Do you have a sick gecko?

No ... Just got a few Geckos and was researching it also. Just seemed odd that every thing I read about it would say Geckos (Did not see BD listed any where) ... Thought it was odd.

Beardies get contaminated by it if someone has a sick gecko is my understanding.

Hello,

That is correct. Bearded dragons can get cryptosporidium, but it is not real common, thankfully. It is contagious though.
