Staphylococcus sciuri (Staphylococcus sciuri subspecies sciuri)

An aerobic gram-positive coccus that is slow growing and produces a small, wet-looking, white, gray-white, cream or yellow colony. It does not produce free coagulase, bound coagulase or hemolysins. It is part of the normal flora of the skin of rodents and may occasionally be found on the skin of humans, nonhuman primates, marsupials, goats, sheep, and carnivores. It can be isolated from soil, sand, and fresh water. It can be a pathogen for animals, but rarely is an opportunistic pathogen for humans.
