anthrax -

Anthrax is an acute and very deadly infectious disease caused by Bacillus anthracis bacteria in its most violent form. Anthrax means "coal" in Greek, and the term is used because the skin of the victims will turn black. Anthrax most commonly attacks wild and tamed herbivores. This disease is zoonotic, which means it can be transmitted from animal to human, but can not be transmitted between human beings.
