About Me

My name is Lisa Frisch and I am a freshman at UW-La Crosse.  This webpage was made for Bio 203.  As of now, I am majoring in Biology and Spanish, and hopefully I will go on to medical school, but I'm unsure of exactly what job I want.  I chose the hippo as my organism because at the zoo I never saw them doing anything so I wanted to know what their life in the wild was like. Although they are not very fun to watch, they are still interesting because of the adaptations they have made to conserve energy and be able to hear above and below water at the same time.  It's also interesting that the whale is its closest relative because they look nothing alike.
