Abstract We conducted a comparative analysis of the aerobic cloacal bacteria of European pond turtles (Emys orbicularis) living in their natural environment and juvenile turtles reared under controlled conditions in a breeding center. We included 130 turtles in the study. The aerobic bacteria isolated from the cloaca of the juvenile turtles were less diverse and more prevalent than the bacteria isolated from free-living adults. We isolated 17 bacterial species from juvenile captive turtles… 
Gut microbiota isolated from the European pond turtle (Emys orbicularis) and its antimicrobial resistance.
TLDR
The study revealed that European pond turtles kept in captivity are carriers of multi-resistant bacteria however, further studies need to be performed to investigate whether the resistant microorganisms are natural microbiota for this species or they were acquired in the zoo.
Virulence and Antimicrobial Resistance Pattern of Aeromonas spp. Colonizing European Pond Turtles Emys orbicularis and Their Natural Environment. First Study from Poland
TLDR
The population of free-living European pond turtles was highly colonized by Aeromonas spp.
Cloacal Gram-Negative Microbiota in Free-Living Grass Snake Natrix natrix from Poland
TLDR
This study provides the largest dataset on intestinal Gram-negative microbiota of wild snakes and identifies pathogenic bacteria that are pathogenic to humans, which clearly highlights the epidemiological potential of free-living N. natrix.
Yeast microbiota of free-ranging amphibians and reptiles from Caatinga biome in Ceará State, Northeast Brazil: High pathogenic potential of Candida famata
TLDR
Reptiles and amphibians are colonized by yeasts capable of producing important virulence factors, especially by Candida spp.
Significance and Roles of Proteus spp. Bacteria in Natural Environments
TLDR
Positive aspects of the bacteria presence in water and soil are connected with exceptional features displayed by autochthonic Proteus spp.
Identification of bacteria present in ulcerative stomatitis lesions of captive sea turtles Chelonia mydas
Anthropogenic activities, predation, and diseases have contributed to a decrease in the sea turtle population in recent years. Ulcerative stomatitis is a condition that occurs in both wild and
Gut microbiota of homologous Chinese soft-shell turtles (Pelodiscus sinensis) in different habitats
TLDR
The functional predictions indicated that both habitat type and sampling time had significant effects on metabolic pathways, especially amino acid and carbohydrate metabolism.
Free-Living Aquatic Turtles as Sentinels of Salmonella spp. for Water Bodies
TLDR
It is suggested that turtles accumulate Salmonella present in water bodies, and they may be effective sentinels of environmental contamination.
Comparing environmental microbiota of different growth stages of fresh water turtle Chinemys reevesii in pond and greenhouse cultivation
TLDR
The first report to explore and understand the difference of microbiota characteristics between different cultivation environments in different growth stages of C. reevesii, which will provide basic data for water quality adjustment, disease prevention, and healthy breeding of turtle.
Antimicrobial activity of some plant extracts against bacterial pathogens isolated from faeces of red deer (Cervus elaphus).
TLDR
This study confirms that many plant extracts shows in vitro antibacterial activity, and tests the antimicrobial activity of nine extracts from different plants against pathogenic bacteria isolated from the faeces of red deer.

Characterization of the Bacterial Microflora of the Tympanic Cavity of Eastern Box Turtles With and Without Aural Abscesses
TLDR
No single bacterial agent was responsible for aural abscesses in free-ranging eastern box turtles in this study, an observation consistent with the hypothesis that aerobic bacteria are not primary pathogens, but secondary opportunistic invaders of environmental origin.
Bacteriological screening of Trachemys scripta elegans and Emys orbicularis in the Po plain (Italy)
TLDR
Since 1999, introduced Trachemys scripta elegans and Emys orbicularis from artificial and natural water bodies in the Po plain (North Italy) were bacteriologically screened and most samples yielded positive bacteriological results.
Isolation of Fecal Coliform Bacteria from the American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) in South Carolina
Many of South Carolina’s waterbodies do not meet the Clean Water Act “fishable and swimmable” goal due to elevated numbers of fecal coliform bacteria, which belong to the enteric family of bacteria.
Bacterial zoonoses among domestic reptiles
TLDR
The main bacterial infections, transmitted from reptiles to humans, are reported, with particular attention to salmonellosis, mycobacteriosis, chlamydophilosis and Aeromonas and Pseudomonas infections.
Aerobic Bacterial Infections in Captive Juvenile Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas) and Hawksbill Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) from Thailand
TLDR
Investigation of the total of 53 juvenile sea turtles found signs of several clinical diseases, and 10 types of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria were identified, which may be responsible for disease and subsequent death of juvenile sea Turtles at the conservation center.

TLDR
A total of 104 farmed turtles were examined for signs of chnical disease including 1 2 bactenal, 4 parasitic and 4 nutritional diseases, and skin lesions due to biting (traumatic ulcerative dermatitis) were almost universal in farmed Turtles.

TLDR
Listeria monocytogenes was isolated from seven leopard frogs, three bullfrogs, a painted turtle, a leech commonly found on turtles, and three species of snails.
Diseases and causes of mortality among sea turtles stranded in the Canary Islands, Spain (1998-2001).
TLDR
This paper lists the pathological findings and causes of mortality of 93 sea turtles stranded on the coasts of the Canary Islands between January 1998 and December 2001.
PATHOLOGY OF AURAL ABSCESSES IN FREE-LIVING EASTERN BOX TURTLES (TERRAPENE CAROLINA CAROLINA)
TLDR
Histopathologic changes in box turtles with aural abscesses were consistent with a syndrome that may involve hypovitaminosis A, and were more severe in tympanic cavities that had an abscess compared to those without when the lesion was unilateral.
