Bacillus anthracis: the bacterium that causes anthrax anthrax differs from most bacteria in that they exist in an inactive (dormant) state called spores the spores are found in soil, animal carcasses and feces (including sheep, goats, cattle, bison, horses, and deer), and animal products (eg. Bacillus anthracis is the etiologic agent of anthrax—a common disease of livestock and, occasionally, of humans—and the only obligate pathogen within the genus bacillus b anthracis is a gram-positive, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, with a width of 10-12 µm and a length of 3-5 µm. Rapidly-growing colonies 2-5 mm overnight at 35c non-pigmented, dry ground glass surface, flat or slightly convex, irregular edges with comma projections (medusa head) sticky (tenacious) consistency when teased with loop, will stand up like beaten egg white colonies are not hemolytic on.
Bacillus anthracis is a pathogenic bacterium that is responsible for the anthrax acute disease the bacteria can form dormant endospores, which can survive for incredibly long periods of time, which can be inhaled or ingested by living animals, which cause the bacteria to reactivate and begin multiplying within the new host.
