Abstract

Strontium chloride B medium and E.E. broth have been found effective in the recovery of Edwardsiella, Salmonella and Arizona species from the cloacal contents of tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus). Strontium chloride B medium was superior to E.E. broth. At least one bacterial species was detected in each of the 60 reptiles examined, and all three organisms were recovered from each of 29 snakes on a single examination. Strontium chloride M, strontium selenite and Rappaport enrichment media and bismuth sulphite agar, although satisfactory for the isolation of Salmonella and Arizona species, were found unsuitable for Edwardsiella tarda.
