Leptospira interrogans

Hi there.
I'm L. interrogans.
I'm a spirochete bacteria.
My favourite place to live is in drinking water, which I get into through animal urine.

I cause leptospirosis.
My disease has 2 stages.
First I'll give you a high fever, headache and muscle ache.
Later, I can give you meningitis, rash and jaundice.
If the second part gets very bad, it is called Weil's disease.
