    No, Escherichia coli (E. coli) does not form endospores. Endospores are a specialized, dormant form of certain bacteria that are highly resistant to harsh environmental conditions like heat, radiation, and chemicals. They are typically formed by bacteria belonging to the genus Bacillus and Clostridium. E. coli is a non-spore forming bacterium commonly found in the intestines of humans and other warm-blooded animals. It does not produce endospores as part of its life cycle.
