Abstract

During the past few years, all crocodile eggs that have been submitted to the Oonoonba Veterinary Laboratory have been examined for bacterial and fungal contamination of both the internal contents as well as the external shell. The number of eggs submitted has not been large but a similar pattern of contamination has been observed from farm to farm. The following is a short note to indicate the types of bacteria and fungi present in crocodile eggs sent in from four different farms in northern Queensland.
