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.

The Future of Mating
Anyway, someone on the SE forum brought up something about the future of sexual organs and our body's built-in outlets (for urinating and dumping). I must say I have never really considered a thing like that. But one thing about my mammals of the Metazoic, you will notice that NONE of them have an external penis or scrotum like today's mammals do. That's because they don't exist in these animals. The females have the same structures as they do today. In the males, the testicles and penis have moved inside the body and cannot be found externally. Much like a lot of the young of today's mammals. This makes the animals more streamlined for running. Either running from predators or running after mates. That's why the mammals of tomorrow will be much faster than the mammals of today. I would think a huge scrotum on a male would make quite an obstacle when moving. Ever seen the nads of some domestic pigs and horses?? Whoosh!! How they can move with those at all makes me wonder. But the pigs and horses of my Metazoic World do not have these features externally. In the males of most mammals of the Metazoic, there are still 2 vents, but there is no external indication which are males and which are females.
The Trelatebrates however, are another story. They are the ultimate in evolution as far as this goes. The Trelatebrates are strictly a Metazoic order, one I myself made that includes the Therapeds, Deinognathids, gaboon-antelopes (soon to come), Immanids (soon to come), Cerots, Anacolls, "Double-grazers" (soon to come) and Shrubucks. Anyway, both the males and females have actually 3 ventral outlets. All female mammals have this feature, but the males in these families also have a small opening in the front-pelvic area for the penis to come out. The testes are situated far inside the pelvic cavity, much like the females' ovaries. They also have a small opening in the central pelvic area for urinating. And the anal opening at the underside base of the tail for, well, you know what! LOL! Anyway, that is why I call this order "trelatebrates", meaning "3 vents". If these mammals were around today, they would be impossible to sex without maybe DNA-sexing used today in birds. Or watching which one of them is humping the other during breeding season.
Anyway, the post was unique, and interesting. It was an interesting thought anyway. One I myself might never have brought up. Either I wouldn't have been clever enough to think of it or too embarrassed!! Some people take talking about animals' sexual organs and ventral openings as an indication of beastiality!! But as an evolutionist looking at it from that kind of a POV, I guess it just has to come up sometime!!
