I'm Y. Pestis.
I'm a Gram negative Enterobacteriaceae bacteria.
I'm from the Yersiniae tribe.
I am the cause of the Black death and the bubonic plague.
I spread all through out Europe in the 14th century and devastated the population.
Some people say I took out a third of Europe!!!
I get spread by fleas that are carried on rats, there were lots of them.
I'm still endemic in a lot of the world, especially in Africa.
