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.

Apology and Thanks
Venatosaurus, I am truly sorry that I hurt your feelings. I hope your project does good. Please forgive me.
I also wanted to thank Katrina publicly for not taking her own personal feelings for JohnFaa to the SE forum, and telling it to him like it is on his blog. WTG Katrina!!!!
I've still retracted my apologies from Viergacht as he has admitted he has autism and needs help. I will say I do feel sorry for him though, and I hope he can get the help he needs. Which is why I am not sorry, but I will not attack him anymore, I am not the type to attack people with mental problems. Poor guy.
Don't retract your apology for Viergacht because he has autism. Rather, retract it because he refuses to accept it, and is still smearing the both of us on the SE forum (and refers to me as you).
As for Venatosaurus, I too apologized, but it was before this post, and is down in the comments board of the previous post regarding the SE forum. I hope your project does well too. In fact, as I have stated before, I cannot wait to see your indricothere-like deer.
Well, I would have done it that way, but I didn't really care if he had accepted my apology or not. I didn't do it for him, I did it to clear my conscience.
But the apology I made to Venatosaurus is not like that! That one came from the heart! :)
So was mine for both Venatosaurus and Viergacht, though Faa claims we are insincere. I don't see how you protesting the forum and my computer trouble equate with insincere.
DOES NOT COMPUTE!
Anyway, I did not know you were on the forum Katrina? Are you KayKay?
Well, kudos to you for keeping your apology to Viergacht. I however stand firm in not giving him any more apologies. Not until he gets some major therapy done.
Katrina is not KayKay, though I do kinda wonder what happened to her. I don't even think Katrina has an account on SE. But in the beginning, I told Katrina about the SE forum and she mentioned she would look in just for fun once in a while.
And my apology also came from the swim bladder...and the liver.
KayKay is still on. In fact she stood up for you (sort of) in the fight, saying it was childish to get into a "bitch war". I agree with you completely KayKay, kudos for you. Plus, KayKay kind of sounds like Katrina. See the similarity?
But anyway, as for the insincere thing...DOES NOT REGISTER, EXTERMINATE, EX-TER-MIN-ATE!
There is a bit of a similarity, but Katrina doesn't usually call herself Kay.
Ah. Anyway, I hope that Canis tells Venatosaurus about this; none of those three really come in here (Titanomonstrus was the one that told them about the original post anyway), and it appears that is the only way to get the apology to Venatosaurus.
Well, anyway it's up. I hope he gets it too. I don't know anything about Titanomonstrous, I don't know if he is the type that only dwells on the negative or what. But somehow I do hope Venatosaurus sees this message.
nope i'm not kaykay. i don't even go into the spec forum that much and i've never posted. i just lurk. but i haven't been in since johnfaa started that war with canis lupus about timgal. titanomonstrous could just be a troublemaker. i don't know he hasn't been in that forum when i've looked in.
"and is still smearing the both of us on the SE forum (and refers to me as you). "
he thinks you and tg are the same person? bwah!! omfg. maybe using veirgacht's logic he and carlos are the same person too! lol!
LOL! OK Katrina, that's enough now.
I've told Venatosaurus and here's what he said:
"I accept, and tell them it's not a problem. I would say that on the blog, but I can't cause I think I need to set up some sort of account in order to post on blogs. Tell them that and that I'm glad they're excited for my project, if you want to give them this link so they can see an early sketch of my carnivorous Duiker descendant ... the Leucrota
This is an early sketch it'll only get better...make sure you tell them everything i said, and thanks for telling me the wonderful news."
His carnivorous duiker is interesting and very plausible.
Canis, tell Venatosaurus he doesn't have to have an account to post on my blog, I allow anonymous users to post. I am looking foreward to seeing his project when it's done.
Thank you :)
"His carnivorous duiker is interesting and very plausible."
It is indeed wonderful news, and both interesting and plausible. I don't see why people are so averse to having carnivorous ungulates in their future scenarios, as there have been many groups of carnivorous ungulates in the past, such as the entelodonts, mesonychids (who are now thought to be the sister group of the artiodactyl+whale clade, not the ancestors), and early whales themselves. Not to mention that in addition to duikers; chevrotains, peccaries, pigs, and even deer (yes, deer) take meat in their diet.
I've been saying all that all along. Ungulates can become carnivorous. No one listened.
They already have. Back during the Oligocene-Miocene of North America, the apex predators were entelodonts, seriously bad-ass peccary cousins.
Peccary cousins? I thought they were pig cousins.
This is Metalraptor, sorry, I couldn't get on my Google account.
Not really. Peccaries and entelodonts are probably closer related to each other than either is to pigs. They both arose at about the same time and the same place, so it isn't too hard to see a common ancestor between entelodonts and peccaries, but not pigs. The only reason why "Walking With Prehistoric Beasts" and other media calls them "killer pigs" is that no one knows what a peccary really is, pig is more well known to the viewing public.
