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 Page: The Flightless Birds!!

I have made a new page for the flightless birds of the Metazoic. It is a non-flash page, as I really am trying to eliminate all the flash pages. Now the site is appearing more like an online book about the future of evolution. Anyway, the page can be viewed here: http://www.metazoica.com/FlightlessBirds.html. I even included the newest flightless bird creation of my project, Apteropsittus. It is a flightless parrot of the Antarctic region. In the future it is believed the Antarctic will be more like the Arctic and have some timber zones. That is where this flightless parrot will make it's home. In the future of the site, I plan to have book referrals about the subject of future evolution. Believe me, I will only have links to books I myself would recommend to anyone. I will not have a link to the book for The Future is Wild, as I found it to be a very big disappointment!! When I do that, I will put my own commentary about each book based on what I've read. I have quite a few books on the future of evolution, including my own, which once I make some changes and additions to my checklist, I might make that available on the site too. So all can see what I have done over the years. But this is a project that may materialize some time in the next few years. Not right now. There are still some books I have not read yet and I want to get those and get some commentary done on them.

What else lives in the Anatctic in the Metazoic?

TimGal said...

So far, some bats, a species of lemur (Frissa) and a species of rat (Policomys). But my list is constantly growing.

Maybe it would be a good place to put some non-mammals.

Well, the Metazoic is supposed to represent an Age of Mammals. Mammals are supposed to be dominating. But I am open to a few new ideas if you'd like to share.

I did actually have a couple ideas for Antarctic animals-mostly birds, seeing as there are so few mammals there. Do what you like with them.

Daspletorhynchus- an eagle or condor-like descendant of the giant petrel. Has a 10-foot wingspan. One of the few large flying birds on the Metazoic.

Struthiochion-a 6-foot-tall flightless descendant of the Sheathbill.

Very nice ideas. :) I don't have a list of birds just yet, but I will keep these in mind. I've been thinking of doing lists for all animals of the Metazoic. But for that I would need a lot more ideas than what I have now.
