A fatal disease in snakes has been linked to a newly discovered virus that is a cousin to hemorrhagic-fever viruses like Ebola. The snake disease -- inclusion body disease, or IBD -- affects pythons and boa constrictors. It was discovered from a sick pet. There is no known transfer of the virus to humans at this time.
