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 Updates!

I added a size chart for the Pteropods. It took all night to work on that and for some reason, I don't feel like I did all of them, but anyway, there they are! You'd be impressed! How does such huge bats get off the ground? The answer is a small, lightweight frame. These bats are built like modern birds. The bones are tiny and hollow, and though the largest of them looks enormous, it actually would weigh less than it looks.

To view these pages, go to the Metazoic Mammal Size Chart book on my site and scroll down to the Pteropodidae. There you can click and go to the pages that covers these species. There are 3 pages.

Also another update, Phobocebus in the ape family is now known as Castosarchus. I like that name better, and it doesn't take away too much from Dixon's book After Man.
