Actually, Snakey Acres, nosocomial infection is a leading cause of herp death on necropsies. NI is when species pick up bacterial or viral infections from seemingly healthy housemates and are immunologically unequipped to fight it off.

I speak from 15 years experience as a veterinary surgical tech. Mixing species can kill! Hygiene and quarantine are hallmarks of a true herper. I know hundreds of people that follow these protocols religiously.
