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 Up: Introducing the Trelatebrates

It has been suggested that I write up a page introducing the trelatebrates, specific to the Metazoic. Well, I am announcing that this page is now up. I speak not only of the trelatebrates, but another branch of the evolutionary tree of elephant shrews. I call them "sinecrus", and they take the place of cetaceans for most of the Metazoic. There are 4 varieties, 3 of which are endemic to the Batavian Islands. All are aquatic. There is a tusked variety that is omnivorous, there is a carnivorous variety that lives like a crocodile or alligator, and there is a vegetarian variety that lives like a fast-moving manatee. There is also a strictly ocean-going variety that lives like dolphins or sharks, and they live strictly in the ocean.

I am thinking of putting the upcoming cladogram on this page for the Afrotheres (descendants of elephant shrews). But here is what I have on it so far. Check it out! http://metazoica.com/trelatebrates.html
