Studies on enteric bacterias in the lower amazon region: I. Serotypes of salmonella isolated from wild forest animals in Pará State, Brazil
Lins, Zéa Constante
Twenty-seven strains of Salmonella were isolated from 1,380 wild animals trapped in uninhabited forest in the Lower Amazon Region, Pará, Brazil, following culture of rectal and cloacal swabs. S. san-diego was isolated from 1 marsupial (Philander opossum); 5 rodents (3 Oryzomys capito and 2 Pröchimys guyannensis) and 14 lizards (Ameiva ameiva ameiva). S. morehead was recovered from 2 rodents (O. capito); one edentate (Choloepus didactylus) and 2 lizards (Ameiva a. ameiva). S. christiansborg and S. wassenaar : single isolations were made from Ameiva a. ameiva. The importance of wild animal reservoirs in the epidemiology of salmonellosis is discussed, particularly in areas newly colonized by man.
