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.

Size-Charts, Current Project

I have decided to do something a little bit different on my website. I am making up size-charts for each family on my checklist. Whether or not I am doing them up on my website. I thought it'd be interesting to put up size depictions of each animal. I've done several so far and I managed to scan them and put them up on the site, but so far nothing points to them yet. It's still a work in progress. With these, it'd be easier to display the varied sizes of each animal in each family.

What I did was put a silhouette of each animal up against an average-sized man (approximately 5'5" or 167.64 cm) so it shows the difference in size and each is drawn to scale. Here is an example of what I have illustrated and will be up on my website soon:

This is a size-chart of the large Deinognathids, and it shows the largest of each genus (in the case there is more than one species) up against an average-sized man. These are old, so I had to make a few changes to them. But anyway, you now get the idea of what will be coming up next on my Metazoic site. I thought these would be a good idea. And I will be doing one of these charts for every family. It's going to take a while, but it'll be done, hopefully by the end of next year.

I have also begun working on a page for Metazoic reptiles and that should also be up soon. I got a few really good species I thought up to display. I'm not the World's best drawer of reptiles, so if anyone would like to help out in that department, please e-mail me at webmaster@metazoica.com I will do what I can by myself, but like I said, don't expect it to be great. Not unless I can get some more reptile experts to do my drawing for me!! That page should be up soon. Even after it is up, I will still be accepting any new drawings and stuff. I will try to get that page up this month.

Gawd!Those predators are huge.Larger than a future predator I created called "Civenator" meaning Hunting Civet.

I'd like to see your "Civenator". I always like seeing other peoples' ideas.
