Well, uh, in case you haven’t read the title, Metazoica’s going to be out for a while. My name’s Metalraptor, and I’ll be your temporary host for the next few months while Metazoica works on her drawings and tries to find a new computer.
I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a scientist-in-training who is fascinated with the “upper vertebrates”, archosaurs and mammals, but really love vertebrates in general. Among the vertebrates, I must say I am a mammal addict, specifically Oligocene-Miocene mammals of the world. I also have a speculative biology future world project of my own “Beasties of the Future,” but I don’t have the gall to put it on the web.
Now, I hate blogs that merely tell you “I got up today, I brushed my teeth, yadda, yadda, yadda”. So, instead of telling you about my boring life, instead I will be presenting to you a variety of essays on biology. Most of these will correlate with Speculative Biology, though the connection between others and the subject may be a little hard to see. But I will promise you I will try to make it as interesting as possible.
Unfortunately, there is some sad news as well. There won’t be any “new families posted” or any “families of the week” for a while. Me not being telepathetic, I can’t read Metazoica’s mind and tell you what she plans to put on her site. So until she gets back...no updates.
Now, I’m not Metazoica, so I’m going to be running things a little differently around here. My rules are slightly different, but they’re going to be what goes, so pay attention. First off, no copious swearing. I don’t care if you keep it at a PG level, but no f-bombing in this blog, from you or from me. Secondly, no insulting people. It is one thing to point out the inaccuracies in an idea, but it is another thing entirely to call people idiots and insult their mothers. Third, anything you post will be directly uploaded to the comment board. This is not my decision; its how Metazoica rigged it, so we both have to learn to deal with it.
So anyway, if you need any proof that I’m not Metazoica, let me tell you what next week’s first subject will be. The first post of mine here will be on...the evolutionary future of cats (Oh god Metazoica’s going to castrate me for this...).
Also, a bit of a disclaimer, and a warning. I’ve gotten a lot of my information from books and paleontological tomes from all over, but my information may not always be that correct and up-to-date. Before you go quoting me, I would suggest that you do the research yourself, and make sure you have all your facts right before you go saying something crazy like...well, can’t give you an example there, spoiler alert.
Finally, I love comments, comments make my blood flow and my four-chambered heart beat. If you want to leave a comment, click on the little comment button down at the end of each post, and leave me feedback...please. Anyway, tune in next week for the evolutionary future of cats!
