Hi, I'm S. bovis.
I'm a Gram Positive coccus and in the D Lancefield group.
However, I only look like a B heamolytic strep in a test made from rabbit blood.
On another test, made from sheep blood, I am an A heamolytic strep.
I cause endocarditis and get into the blood to cause bacteraemia.
I am also found in alot of places where colon cancer is found.
So if you have me, you should always check for colon cancer.
