Best Answer

Clostridium anthracis is a bacterium that causes anthrax, a serious infectious disease primarily affecting livestock and occasionally humans. It can form spores that can survive in the environment for long periods of time, leading to the potential for outbreaks in animal populations or human exposure through contact with contaminated animal products. Anthrax can be treated with antibiotics if promptly diagnosed.
