Bacteria from bearded dragon fatal to uromastyx?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Like in the thread topic, anyone heard about something called D agamarum? From what I was told it's a bacteria found in bearded dragons digestive tract that is fatal to uromastyx lizards. I tried to google more informations but there is nothing specific, only that people heard about something like I described but no details, no specific articles or book references. If anyone knows some more info I would be really thankful!

Update, I was given this very vague info on one of the fb groups, so I asked for some articles about it. There were few, very very scientific ones, but from what I understood these bacterias are as easily found in iguanas, all agamas and uros as well. None of these articles send to me said that uromastyx can be infected because of the beardies in the same home. If anyone will be inetersted I can link the articles I was send

Here are these links:

And there were also two documents in pdf but I don't know how to attach them here.


I talked with a few breeders of uromastyx about it, but while they all agreed that it really exists and were telling me the same informations I still didn't get any other articles or research materials about it. They just agreed that it's naturally existing bacteria in beardies and that it's fatal for uromastyx, but with proper husbandry, washing hands and using different equipment you can keep both species safely.
