I believe toads are the ones that are supposed to give you warts, not turtles, either way, I don\'t believe either one will cause warts, I would have been full of them by now:D

Warts are caused by the Human Pappilloma Virus. It is transmitted by skin contact or shared use of towels and contact with surfaces by someone who has the virus. Animals do not carry HPV. Only humans carry the virus. Getting them from toads is just a myth.
