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.

A Busy Cookie!
That's quite an accomplishment for one night. I think next I shall do some work for my herps page. I've thought of a few species to display, though regrettably not much. This anonymous e-mailer I've been working with gave me an idea for a vegetarian crocodile. I think it would be a great addition! Apparently some crocodilians have learned to eat vegetation in the form of fallen fruits. It would work in like say a remote island where no large, herbivorous mammals are. I am also trying out his idea for a flag-crocodile. I like it. I also have some snakes I will be displaying, like a 50-foot long anaconda of southern South America. I also have an enormous tortoise from the Chilean mountains. I also made the nile crocodile into a flippered species found exclusively in the channel between the African mainland and Lemuria. What I call the Nile Channel. Might as well call it that! It's already the Nile River today! I am trying to think of ways to make my flippered crocodile different from those of others. Apparently I am not the only one who had that idea!! I think I got an idea too. You will be able to see it once I put it up on my site.
Well, I've already begun work on some of these ideas and I don't really know when I will be putting it up. I hope to have it up this week though. I will of course be making an announcement on this blog when I do get it up. I know some people have been itching to see some Metazoic herps, so I will be working on those next. Now that I am on a roll, I guess I will be pumping out ideas and more drawings fast. Maybe even have this project halfway done by next Monday! LOL! Well, not really. But I will have a whole weekend of nothing else to do so I might as well use that time wisely. My sis Anna has a test on Monday and she will be using this weekend to study for it. So I will have really nothing else to do. Knowing now how many supporters I have, it encourages me to keep going too! So I don't want to disappoint them. After I finish the herps, well, I guess it's back to mammals until I can think of another page I need to do. I got birds, I will have reptiles/amphibians, maybe do a page for fish some time in the future. I dunno though. Fish are hard! My knowledge of fish is rather basic. It's enough to work well in a tropical fish shop, but not enough to predict where their evolutionary paths are going.
Well anyway, keep checking for more updates!
