Is clostridium tetani considered armed or dangerous?
Clostridium tetani, the bacterial pathogen that causes tetanus (lock jaw) is arguably armed but is definitely dangerous. The toxin excreted by this bacterium causes serious illness and death in humans, but it is arguable whether that toxin can be considered an intentional weapon, since it serves the bacteria no purpose to kill its host.

Clostridium tetani is a bacterium that is the causative agent oftetanus. Spores in contaminated wounds, needles, burns andlacerations transmit it. It occurs worldwide and in 2…003, over15,000 patients contracted tetanus. Between 2000 and 2003, over290,000 people died of tetanus.
Like other members of that genus, C. tetani is an obligate anaerobe, so the only way of getting energy is by a form of fermentation.
