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.

Available Soon: Checklist!!

I have been doing some work on my Metazoic mammals checklist, and I am considering seriously making it available on my website. I don't know if I want to charge for it or make it a freebie item, but it will have every animal listed on my Metazoic site and thensome. I'm even adding a key to the new places listed as their traditional homes (otherwise, who the heck is going to know what "GBM" means or where "San Diego Island" is?) and a little information on each family, including time period, how long I suspect they will be here, and when the group was established.

If I do charge for it it won't be much. Maybe $3 or $4. If I don't charge for it, well, then others can just download it for pleasure reasons. But already it contains detailed info about genera, species, even sub-genera where available. I even list the common names. I'm trying to think what else to add. I am working on a set of books with much more detail about these animals, including maps to locations where they would be found. But that comes later. And those I would have to charge for. But anyone who wants to see what I have done with these animals over the past years can get this checklist. There are no pictures, but the entire list of animals is there. I'm even making it a little more scientific, based on what I learned on that series "Evolution" which is now off the air!! Bummer!!!!! Anyway, the money made can go towards the site's upkeep. That is IF I do decide to charge for the list. I dunno though. Might pass along better as a freebie.
