Is it okay to keep your chameleon in the same room that you sleep in? My room is usually empty during the day and not disturbed. But my main concern is salmonella poisoning. I've been reading on the web and found an article from the CDC (Center of Disease Control) that explains the risks of keeping a reptile in your house. The main concern was salmonella and reccomened that all reptiles should be housed outside or in the garage. They said that salmonella will be contracted from the lizards poop and become airborn. Should I move my cham to the garage?
