The formation of bacterial endospores in the living animal body has not been reported. In 1958-1S80 M. Taylor, Fort Detrick, observed unpublished data, through several weeks, anthrax spores produced in the cecum of a germ-free Lobund rat after challenge. General opinion is that it does not occur. We have found, however, that in vivo-formed spores of several species of bacilli may be demonstrated in the chicken egg embryo.
