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.

New Family Posted: The Armadillos!!!

I have just completed another family group, the armadillos of tomorrow. I didn't color these pics, I just didn't feel like it. Someday maybe. Sometimes I just don't feel like coloring the pics so I don't. Anyway, I was watching Jurassic Fight Club last night on the History Channel, and they were displaying a dinosaur called Gastonia. This is a small, squat ankylosaur with a scissors-tail. I saw that and I thought "Well, I have an armadillo that has that very same feature for my Metazoica project!!" So that is what led me to do this project. Funny thing I thought up Grammoclavia back in 1995, and it is the armadillo that has the same chainsaw tail Gastonia does! And until last night I had never even heard of Gastonia! Amazing! Grammoclavia also is equipped with a club-tipped tail. So it is double armed. It is perfect for this world dominated by Deinognathids and other large predators such as them. Though in the picture on the site, I depict Grammoclavia battling with a Cynocephalogale mongoose, another predator of their's.

I included all 4 genera I predict will be around during the Metazoic. This is a first! Including a rather tiny, underground-dwelling armadillo that sort of more resembles an armored rabbit that I called Thoracolagus. Anyway, the armadillos can be viewed at this address: http://www.metazoica.com/armadillos.html. Enjoy them! Any comments are welcomed.
