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: New World Monkeys!!!

A new family has been added to the Metazoica line-up, the Metazoic's New world monkey family. You can view them here: http://www.metazoica.com/NewWorldMonkeys.html. As with all the families of the Metazoic, this one is different. These monkeys actually come from the marmosets and tamarins of today. A few have developed the prehensile tails we see in a lot of today's new world monkeys. But these monkeys have had to adapt themselves to the Amazonian region of the future, where there will be a bit less jungle than there is now. Some have even pushed their range up into North America to beat the competition. In doing that, they would have to learn to adapt to colder climates. One species that lives in what is today the Rocky Mountains, has evolved a long, flat tail to wrap it's self up in during snow storms and blizzards. Acting much like our own heaviest coats.

Today, monkeys do not live in the USA, except for some that escaped a research facility in Florida and has established wild colonies there. They might even make it into the next era. Monkeys are very adaptable. But that's another family entirely. I also fixed the Guestbook feature on my site. Yesterday I noticed someone left a post and it somehow went to my guestbook for TG's Chihuahuas! How that happened I don't know! I must have put the wrong code on my Metazoic site! Well anyway, now the link goes to my Metazoic guestbook. My apologies for that!
