AEROMONAS HYDROPHILA INFECTION IN TUNTUNG(RIVER TERRAPIN) – A CASE STUDY

Specimens of river terrapin (Batagurbaska) and painted terrapin (Callagurborneonsis) turtles from Wildlife Conservation which died during captive rearing were subjected to complete necropsy. They inhabit estuaries and tidal reaches of medium to large rivers throughout Southeast Asia. Both belong to monotypic genera and represent the largest emydid turtles, reaching a carapace length that may exceed 60 cm. Aeromonas species are ubiquitous inhabitants of fresh and brackish water. They have also been recovered from chlorinated tap water including hospital water supplies. Many have considered Aeromonas hydrophila to be an opportunistic pathogen. This seems like a contradiction in terms, since most bacteria which are termed “opportunistic” usually do not cause disease unless other factors are involved.
