Welcome to my Metazoic site! This site discusses the existence of the creatures to come along after humans will be extinct. I first became interested in a world after man when I acquired my first copy of Dougal Dixon's After Man: A Zoology of the Future in 1992. However, I unwittingly created creatures that did not exist from the time I was about 8 years old. But it was after I obtained a copy of that book (now a collector's item) that I decided to take these same creatures I created as a child and make them more realistic in an evolutionary sense. Though it may be hard for a lot of us to grasp, humans will soon become extinct. One of the biggest factors of how this will happen is the current overpopulation rate. Which is why I don't contribute to the population. I created this world with little more than mammals fulfilling all ecological niches with the help of some friends. I even gave the era of the age after man a name, I called it the Metazoic, derived from the words for "After-era" (Meta, meaning after, and zoic meaning era). We are now in the Cenozoic era. To view all the animals I have created since I began this project, you can go to the "Meet the Mammals" section of this site. To discuss your own ideas about what you think will happen in the future world, and share your ideas with others, please feel free to leave a comment.
One more thing, some of you may find this site quite offensive, and you have a right to your own opinion. But please respect my right to have an opinion too. I'm not saying there is no GOD, I believe it was HIM who got the ball rolling. But I believe after that, evolution took over. There is so much more evidence of evolution than there is of creation. Even that going on right under our noses. Other than that, enjoy yourself and visit our many links.

Metazoic Mammal Size Comparisons

A new page is up. I have decided to create another entire page to display size comparisons between different species of Metazoic mammals. I had something similar to this on the other site, where I had size-charts. I've decided to dispense with that on this site, and instead, I have a whole page devoted to size comparisons. This time, they are in video form. They could change as more genera and species are added to certain families. But this is what I've got for now.

As of this date, there is only a few videos. But as time goes on, more and more will be added as I work on them, along with more pages for mammal families in the Meet The Mammals section. I am also still working on the book. That is a task in it's self! It's been tough balancing the book with other projects I am needed to work on. So, it is a slow process. This is also why I haven't been working on the Meet The Mammals section lately. But I am trying to get back in the groove. All I can say is please be patient. So far, the book isn't as fully detailed, as I am trying not to make it a 1000 page book. I'm just putting enough info in the book that the readers can look at the animals and understand main points of their lifestyle. But I am already 83 pages in and only have done 5 families, as well as the flightless birds and the herps. But I am also including some of the pages that are on this website in the book. Just because I want to include everything.

Anyways, if you are interested in keeping up with the size comparisons, the new page is now listed in the sidebar links. You can visit and see what I've got so far. I've taken only the largest species of each genus and compared it to the size of an average human. I thought the video version would be more eye-catching than the silhouette versions I had before. And perhaps a little more detailed. I might even replace some as time goes on and my ideas evolve. But anyways, enjoy them!

My First Video

Though I might do more, different kinds of videos, this has been my very first attempt at doing a size-comparison type video. Of course I started with my favorite group, the deinognathids. I just want to see how well this video does on here. There's no sound. If you think I should put sound in, let me know in the comments section. But this is my first video of this kind and I might do more. Enjoy it.

Wild Animals Are Turning Nocturnal to Avoid Humans

It's true, and it's making a bit of a difference in the way wild animals today are evolving. I found this article this afternoon, and I wanted to share. It's a paid site, so I'll just copy and paste the article here so you all don't have to pay to see it. Anyway, it is implying that even animals that were not nocturnal before are now learning to do most of their activity at night. Kindof a sad thing, as you all know most of the mammals of the Metazoic I list as diurnal. Nocturnism is a rare thing among the mammals of tomorrow. It wouldn't be needed, since humans will not be around. Anyways, here is the article. I will also provide the link in case you want to sign up with them to see the article.

Wild animals are turning nocturnal to keep away from humans
By Michael Le Page

Once great monsters ruled the planet, and mammals cowered in the shadows and came out only at night. Now monsters once again rule the planet, and mammals are reverting to the nocturnal habits of their distant ancestors.

“All mammals were active entirely at night, because dinosaurs were the ubiquitous terrifying force on the planet,” says Kaitlyn Gaynor of the University of California, Berkeley. “Now humans are the ubiquitous terrifying force on the planet, and we’re forcing all of the other mammals back into the night-time.”

Gaynor and her colleagues study the impact people have on wildlife. They noticed a striking pattern: animals were becoming more active at night to avoid human disturbances. When they looked in the scientific literature, they found many other groups had seen the same pattern.

Her team has now done a meta-analysis of 76 studies of 62 mammals all around the world. Almost all of them are shifting to the night to avoid us.

Into the night

Take the now-ironically-named sun bear, a vulnerable species living in south-east Asia. In areas with few people, only 19 per cent of sun bear activity occurs at night. But around a research camp in Sumatra, 90 per cent of activity is at night.

Similarly, in protected areas of Tanzania, only 17 per cent of lions’ activity is at night. Outside those areas, it’s 80 per cent.

On average, human disturbances have increased nocturnal activity in the 62 species by a factor of 1.36. In other words, animals with a 50/50 split between night and day activity in undisturbed areas typically have a 70/30 split in disturbed areas.

“There are fewer and fewer spaces wildlife can go to avoid people,” says Gaynor. “So they’re avoiding us in time because they can’t avoid us in space. This trend is going to continue as the human population grows.”

And it’s not just happening in places like cities where there are lots of people. It’s also happening near roads, rural settlements and even in places where people go hiking. What is not clear is what the consequences are.

Life in the dark

On the one hand, animals forced to do more at night might struggle compared with those in the few remaining undisturbed areas.

For instance, sable antelope in Africa usually avoid waterholes at night because predators like lions might be lying in wait. But in areas of Zimbabwe where “sports” hunters lurk by waterholes by day, they have switched to drinking at night – so overall more may be killed.

On the other hand, the shift is helping animals survive alongside people. For instance, in Chitwan in Nepal lots of tigers are managing to live in close proximity to people by being more active at night.

In this sense, the shift to the night might be a good thing. “It’s a way to share space on an increasingly crowded planet,” says Gaynor. “We take the day and they take the night.”

Adapted to darkness

Thanks to our nocturnal ancestors, many mammals still have plenty of the characteristics needed to be more active at night, says Gaynor. And they are very likely already evolving to be even better at it.

“I would expect that this is an incredibly strong selective force,” says Kate Jones of University College London, who has shown that mammals only became active during the day after the dinosaurs disappeared.

One weakness of the meta-analysis is that many of the individual studies only looked at a small number of animals, says Jones, but overall it is fairly convincing.

“It shows that we are a really big force on the planet now, like the dinosaurs were before us,” she says. “Which is really frightening.”

Jones points that artificial lights are also changing the very nature of the night. “We are lighting up the night.”

Yet More Name Changes

I am currently working on the family of antelope of the Metazoic, the Megalodorcids. In the process, I made some name changes along the way. Some of the names seemed too simple, and I got some ideas from a paper I saved about how to come up with scientific names. So, what I did was I changed some of the names of some of the animals. I wanted to make them sound like they would if the animals were around today, being named by the people of their native lands. So, this is what I came up with, partially thanks to some friends and Google Translate, LOL!

Anatolopis is now Dakpil.
Maxibos is now Kaela.
Myodorcas is now Tziki.

Also some more names have been updated...

Minopileatus is now Sacouloforeas.
Eopithecus is now Neadapis.
Planodon is now Platodon. I just changed the spelling a little, it still means the same thing.

These are some of the changes to the Megalodorcidae family. I also split some of the genera into sub-genera groups. For example, Megalodorcas now has been separated into 4 subgenera: Megalodorcas, Xionibos, Afrotaurus and Paleador. The genus Azema has also been divided into 3 sub-genera: Eugazella, Chamma and Azema. These will all be listed in the latest version of the Metazoic checklist, which I will be putting up shortly.

If there are any more changes to the list, I will be putting them in this post.

My Current Project

I am finally taking the big leap! I am writing a book all about the animals on this site. I have even included the flightless birds and the herps. I may even include a little info about the flying birds of the Metazoic. I am working on colored pictures of these creatures, as the black and white pics I present on this site of those animals are boring!! I am even adding scenery to these pics. However, these pics will only be visible in the book. I am not going to put them on the site. I want to make this book as detailed as possible. I am also adding the chapters on this site to the book.

Best of all, I will be adding an entire section devoted to the miraculous mammals of this site to the book. I will be going into a LOT more detail about each genus and family on this site in the book. A lot more than just names and pictures. Although I do intend to use the pictures I use on this site in the book. It's just that there will be more detail about each genus in this book I am working on. I'm separating each page to discuss each genus of animal. That's how I've decided the layout of this book will be. I've been doing good so far, and it is looking nice! I will offer this book on this site, on the UMG Productions site, as they are the publishers, as well as Amazon. I will post all the links on this site when the book is finished. It may take a while to finish, as I am still currently also working on the pictures for the Meet the Mammals section, that will also be used in this book. Watch for it!

Don't expect this book to be cheap! It's going to be in full color, and that it's self is expensive. I really have no idea right now what it's going to cost, but it may be quite a bit. I'm going to cut costs as much as I can, by only offering this book in paperback. But I've also got other full-color books on UMG Productions, and they are pretty expensive. I may offer a generous discount to those who would want to collaborate on this project, but only to those people, and only through this site. Not through like Amazon. If you would like to donate your time to collaborate with this project, please use the Contact Us form and submit samples of your work. I am not that great at drawing cats or panthers, so I can use someone who can draw those animals very well. Like I said, I cannot pay anything, but I can offer you a great discount on the book once it is published. It's worth it, believe me. I hope to have this book done by the end of the year. But it also depends on how quickly I can finish the Meet the Mammals section.

I will be keeping you all up to date on the progress of this book.
