“…The unfavorable climatic conditions (average rainfall and temperature of 0.47 mm and 29.28 • C, respectively, in the dry season) and a significant proportion of seroreactive cows-mainly for the Sejroe serogroup-provide evidence of intraspecies transmission, because cattle are deemed its natural hosts [30]. Tarassovi is one of the main serogroups found in bovine species [9], for which there have been few reports in Brazil [31]; however, it has been found in pigs [32] and "teiús" (Tupinambis merianae) [33] from the semiarid region. The Australis serogroup has pigs as reservoirs, but there are alternative wildlife hosts [30]; for example, equines act as their maintenance hosts in semiarid Brazil [34].…”

“…In cattle, this disease is more associated with subfertility and early embryonic death when the serovars is host-adapted, such as serovar Hardjo [ 6 ]. Studies conducted in the semiarid region of Brazil have suggested that both domestic [ 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 ] and wild animals [ 13 , 14 ] present high frequencies of Leptospira spp. This occurs despite the hot and dry climate conditions of this region, which are adverse to the survival of this bacterium in the environment.…”
