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 Weasels!!!!

I have been working on another family of animals, the weasels, family: Vulpemustelidae. This is the Metazoic weasel family. They are truly descended from modern weasels, but they have a bit of a difference. Their legs are a bit longer than many species in the modern weasel family. The futuristic sea otter (Thalassictis) is well on it's way to becoming cetacean-like. They have flippers instead of feet, like modern sea otters. One species, Phobogula, is the bully of it's era. It is the equivolent of modern wolverines. Like wolverines, they can muscle into any other animals' kills. Though some predators, like Ictocamelus, would be a dangerous, and ultimately fatal, target for even a Phobogula's rage. But like modern wolverines against grizzly bears, they sometimes take their chances.

Well anyway, that's some of the family in a nutshell. Here is the link where you can read more about them, and view them: http://www.metazoica.com/weasels.html. I didn't color these either. I see other peoples' project and I notice mine is the only one in color. The only thing is, I SUCK at drawing scenery. I'm almost to a point where I say "What the Hell!!" and just leave the background blank!! All anyone really needs to see is the animal it's self!! Nothing more. Someday maybe.

I like the art, but the name Microraptor is taken by a dinosaur. :P
