Discovery NotesFound on the shoreline of a man-made lake at the Hattiesburg Zoo. It came from wet soil underneath the feet of some geese. It was taken at surface level, and the weather was a sunny summer day around 79º Fahrenheit
Naming NotesWe chose the name Waterfoul because our soil sample came from under neither some ornery geese we had to shoo away in order to get at the soil. Water fowl are birds that live and thrive near water, the word foul means ill-tempered. Thus, we used the pun Waterfoul to name our phage and make a specific nod to where it was found.
