Discovery NotesFound in the morning under a rose bush & in a grassy area in student's backyard. The soil was moist due to the rain from the day before. Additionally, the soil had a slight sandy texture and was very thick, resulting in a large pellet. Dogs are frequent inhabitants in the backyard and both areas had insects. May have had fertilizer in either area.
Naming NotesNamed after the location it was found and that our phage was very stubborn during one of our experiments and it was almost like a wrestling match to get it discovered, hence, Bushinator.
