Discovery NotesThe soil was obtained from a garden that contained a habanero tree. The weather was cool due to rain the previous day - about 55ºF. The soil was collected about three inches deep into the soil of the habanero tree. It had a dark, brownish color, was very moist, and had organic matter.
Naming NotesThe reason why I chose the french name Créature Épicée, which translates into spicy critter, was mainly because this phage was found in a habanero tree. Also, this little phage was pretty cool to work with and had unique characteristics such as producing many plaques at once. Therefore, the name.

Plaque NotesThe size of the plaques ranged from 1mm to 2mm. They appeared to have a circular shape. The plaques were clear; however, they have halos around the margins of the plaque, so it is most likely that they are temperate phages.
