As usual Lisa is right, proper hygene should be taken when handling reptiles. The feces(crap) of a reptile has many parasites and bacteria that,"may" cross infect humans.Most are family/species specific and are not zoonotic(snake to human) but being safe not sorry is best. It is just as if you didn't take care of your cat's litterbox....the other thing is that you may transfer disease to your other reptiles.
