    So my girlfriends Princess Parrot was out for a fly, and decided to go for a swim in the turtle tank. We don't think it drank any water, but if it did, is there a risk of infection from salmonella or something? The tank has a baby turtle and a few mollies in it.

    thats hard to say, i wouldn't worry about it though i give my scalies kisses all the time for years, haven't had salmonella yet. i sometimes think its just an old wives tail to keep people away from reptiles :p watch the parrot over the next few days though, if she/he has a decreased appetite/increased thirst, diarrhea, gets slow and lethargic then something is up.
