This study was conducted to identify zoonotic and pathogenic bacteria from gecko feces. A total of 95 fecal samples were collected from four locations in Baghdad province (AL-Hurriyah, Hay-Al-Khadhraa, AL-Jadriyah, Al-Zaa’faraniyah) from March 2015 to May 2016, 112 Bacterial isolates were revealed, the main were : E. coli spp. (35%), Staphylococcus (19%), Salmonella (9%), Klebsiella spp. (9%), Proteus (7.1%), Pseudomonas (6.2%), Serratia (5.3%), Yersinia (5.3%) and Shigella (4.4%). The highest frequency of bacterial infection was observed in samples collected from Al-Zaa’faraniyah (25%) followed by Hay-Al-Khadhraa (18.9%), AL-Jadriyah (17.8%) and AL-Hurriyah (15.7%).
