Be careful when purchasing herps from places that also sell birds. Many birds (regardless of origin) carry parasites and other disease that can seriously infect reptiles (as well as people). Motion of the birds wings can easily spread pathogens to other cages. Also watch fish..though nothing is going to jump out and are notoroius sources of many parasites and you don't know exactly what goes on behind the scenes in terms of sanitation between animals.
