AB  - BACKGROUND: Leptospirosis is an important public health threat in sub-Saharan
      Africa but little is known regarding the host spectrum and epidemiology of this
      zoonotic disease. METHODS: 289 kidney samples from 69 wild, domestic and
      peri-domestic species in northern Botswana were screened for the presence of
      Leptospira sp. RESULTS: Renal carriage was widespread among mammals (31.4%,
      n=11/35 species), birds (27.8%, n=5/18 species) and reptiles (6.3%, n=1/16
      species), including several novel species. CONCLUSION: Leptospiral surveillance
      is often limited to the usual suspects: rodents and domestic animals. We identify
      Leptospira in a wide range of African wildlife, suggesting that leptospirosis
      transmission and persistence may also involve hosts not normally considered.
