I plan on writing my paper on the American Crocodile. It is an endangered specie, which inhabits, in the USA, the coastal areas of Southern Florida. I plan on discussing many aspects of the American Crocodile; it's habitat, especially about how humans have effected it, its biology, diet, and so on. I would like to teach the class about the American Crocodile, to respect the animal, what can be done to help insure its survival, and some interesting facts. A major reason I choose this topic is because top line predators are always fun and interesting, but also not too many people know about the American Crocodile. Every one knows all about the American Alligator, but do not really have much of a clue about the crocodile. I want to help raise awareness for this specie.

This is just a preliminary submission. When I gather more information I will update.
