    Yes. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that amphibians or reptiles are associated with the cause of 74,000 cases per year of salmonella. Just this past month, pet African dwarf frogs bred in California were found to be the cause of an 8-month outbreak of salmonella in 31 states.

    Yes, they can. According to a fact sheet put together by the Occupational Health and Safety program, salmonella can be spread from frogs to humans. Generally, good hygeine & the use of gloves while handling frogs can prevent the spread. The bacteria inhabits the digestive tract of humans & animals and can be harmful if ingested, even indirectly.
