Hello visitors, my name is Sithichok Chang and I am currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. I am majoring in Pre-Pharmacy and the Biomedical Sciences. I hope to become a compounding pharmacist in the future and revolutionize the manufacturing of modified medication.

Smilodon fatalis was known for their well-developed upper canines in which I found the most fascinating. May this journey back in time present you with an exciting discovery of the dominant Smilodon fatalis. My research was based on the Nutrition and Life History, Interactions, and Facts of S. fatalis.

My name is Kaitlin Cullen and I am a Junior at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.  I will be graduating in May of 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree, double majoring in Biology and Spanish.  My hopes for the future are to become a Physician's Assistant and work for the organization Doctors Without Borders in a Spanish speaking country. 

I found Smilodon fatalis to be an extremely interesting organism, as I hope you do too.  After extensive research, I was responsible for the pages Classification, Habitat, and Adaption.
