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.

I also have someone who is going to do a biome map for my website and I will be putting that up once it is completed. I'm not sure about how to predict biomes, but I gave it a shot, and I think I gave him enough info that it can be done somewhat effectively. I don't know if my ideas were detailed enough, I was constantly distracted as I was writing the e-mail.
Anyway, enjoy the new size-chart!!
You know what's amazing? How much the future evolutionists on the SE forum are so against my mammals being the next rulers of the Earth, and in the poll to the right of this page it seems birds and mammals get all the votes. Keep voting folks! It will be up for a whole year.
lol i voted for your mammals dude.
I voted for the birds, though if the choice was up there I would have voted for a mixed dominance between the mammals and the archosaurs (birds+crocodilians).
Among the large animals we have around today (not counting Africa), about half of the large animals in most areas are birds and crocodilians (occasionally a monitor lizard or an iguana). If we were to have a final extinction event that mopped up the survivors of the advent of humanity (rhinos, giraffes, elephants, great apes, most pantherines except the clouded leopard, jaguar, and leopard, humans, etc.), there would be just as many crocs and birds as mammals in large niches, and they wouldn't just step aside and let the mammals take over. Essentially it would be a sort of Eocene, but with more large birds and more advanced members of both groups present.
Sorry. I guess I had no idea what archosaurs are. Though I have heard the phrase.
It is rather ironic that people still consider crocodilians reptiles, even though numerous features of their anatomy (like rooted teeth) point to crocodilians, other crurotarsians, dinosaurs, and birds (along with a few other miscelaneous groups like rhyncosaurs being as natural of a grouping as Mammalia, termed Archosauria. Crocodilians have actually devolved in order to be more energy efficient, evolution isn't just progress you know. However, what we have today is if a mass extinction occured and only the whales and bats survived. If some Corax sapiens came along, how in the world would they be able to tell the two are closely related.
