Parasites

Postby FESTUS » Wed Dec 04, 2019 5:19 am

Hey, I'm looking into getting a bearded dragon. I've wanted one for a while now and have done tones of research. 1 thing I cant find though.
I already own a green cheek conure. I am curious to know if having them both in the same house as they will both be out of their enclosures a lot cause health issues. Like do birds carry some parasites harmful to berries? Or do dragons carry some harmful ones toward birds?
Thanks

I dont think youd need to worry about cross contamination. However dragons are absolutely terrified of birds. It is one of their top natural predators. So keep that in mind. As a view of the bird likely will extremely stress out your dragon.

Otherwise, I doubt you have anything to worry about as far as parasites go.

I have my beardie in a room away from my birds so he doesn't have to live in fear or in constant stress. He gets out /sunny window time in that room, and they get out time in their room. As far as cross-contamination, I would think that's only a concern if either animal spends time where the other poops. Just having them in the same house is fine. :0)
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D
