Abstract

The Gila monster (Heloderma suspectum) is native to the Sonoran Desert. Metagenomic analyses of a Gila monster fecal sample revealed the presence of a small, circular, single-stranded DNA virus that is most closely related to a ge-mykrogvirus (family Genomoviridae) genome from caribou feces sharing 88% genome-wide pairwise identity.
