Viruses and Bacteria?
We all know baking wood kills parasites, but how about any unknown disease and the like? Friend of mine sold his WC Nile monitor and gave me all the contents of the cage, which included some awesome flat rocks (which I haven't been able to find anywhere) and some other wooden acessories. He only had it for a few weeks so I have no clue what kind of shape this animal was in either. I haven't used any of it but would love to if I could. I'm not sure how well bacteria and viruses withstand temperatures though so its all just been sitting in my basement for probably close to a year now.
