    Hi everyone,

    I've been thinking recently about the diseases that seem to be popping up occasionally (sunshine virus, opmv, IBD etc.) and they seem to be genus specific. I've done a little google search but it hasn't been too successful so I thought I would put it out there.

    Are these diseases restricted to snakes only, lizards only etc.? And can they be passed from one to another? Or is this something that is still requiring further research?

    For example, I currently have a GTP in quarantine (I got it in february), and I've been thinking about getting another N. amyae gecko. Hypothetically, would I be able to quarantine a new gecko in the same room as my GTP or are the nasty things we quarantine for transferrable between these animals?
