PENAGOS GAVIRIA, Melissa et al. Presence of Salmonella spp in captivity and wild river turtles in Urabá, Colombia. Ces. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.2, pp.111-120. ISSN 1900-9607.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21615/cesmvz.13.2.2.

Salmonellosis is a high prevalence infectious diseases worldwide and turties have been recognized as chronic carriers. Studies have reported the presence of Salmonella spp in river turtles in different countries; however, studies in wild individuals are less common. The objective of this study was to identify the presence of Salmonella spp in wild (n=50) and in captivity (n=55) river turtles in Uraba Antioqueño (Colombia) between 201 5-2016. Trachemys venusta, Rhinoclemmys melanosterna, and Kinosternon leucosto-mum were included. Feces samples were taken by cloaca swab׳ cultures were performed, and DNA extraction and PCR were made from the colonies isolated. From total population(n=105) two male, adults in captivity were positive, the specie was R. melanosterna. The results obtained do not exclude infection due to the intermittence in the excretion of the bacteria in feces. This research provides evidence of the presence of the bacteria in turtles from the region and highlights the requirement to implement preventive activities to reduce contact with these species, and decrease the probability of transmission of nontyphoidal salmonellosis in human population around the region.
