About Me

    My name is Brandon Schreiber and I am a freshman at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse.  This webpage was made for my Bio 203 class.  I am majoring in the pre-chiropractic program here, so I will hopefully be graduating with a biomedical concentration degree.  I chose the American alligator as my organism because I have always had the utmost respect for them and wanted to learn more about them.  I was really glad I chose the gator because I learned a lot of things that I did not know of before and I hope you did too!  Another reason I chose it was because while looking around on the internet I ran across the fact that they were really closely related to the birds?!  They were the only two two survive Archosauria!
