Discovery NotesTaken on: 8-23-2020, 2:00 p.m.

Depth: ~8cm

Soil Conditions: The sample was under a large amount of mulch, some of which was inadvertently collected with the sample. Generally soft, clumped together, and gave easily when dug into. Sample was moist, leaving moisture on my hand when examined. Texture felt analogous to a sponge or cake; firm but compressible.

Auxiliary: Found beside a Chili's, which is somewhat amusing.
Naming NotesBonk is a short, simplistic, and mildly amusing word that has been used more and more throughout the world and within my own life. As such, it felt right to name a phage after it.
