YES :!: :!: :!:

Alligator mississippiensis - the American alligator!

Man, I thought that geography thing would be a little obvious. Of course, it's obvious to me because the monsters live in my backyard! 8)

Okay, MrMistery's turn. We await your excellence. :P

Hehe.. I was reading from Campbell last night and came across the american alligator and immediately thought about this game.
Ok, so, i am thinking of a very special... MOLECULE...
Waiting for your questions...
PS: If anyone guesses this before 10 questions are answered i will award 5 biopoints(since it is kinda hard+i want to put the biopoint system to some use...)

PS: I have changed the name of this thread to "Twenty questions"-biology game, and moved it to general discussion under sticky. So, as a result, let's stick to biology things...

I'm not that good with proteins, but I'll try anyway.

Is it found in humans?
Is it an enzyme?
