Discovery NotesI found Terror in the soil situated in my backyard near some Cactus plants. The soil was dry and dark brown.
Naming NotesTerror is the name of my dog who seems to be attracted to attacking its siblings and unknown visitors.He is the oldest of 3 dogs but smallest in size - He is definitely a dynamite in a small package and he knows how to stand his ground and own his territory. My new little phage has the same characteristics as Terror. He is minute but vicious, so I named this little fighter after Terror!
