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.

Long Time, No Hear From!

I just wanted to fill my viewers here on what I have been up to lately. I've been working on one of the biggest projects of my career. A book about dogs of the World. It's my passion. I know this has nothing to do with Metazoica, but I just wanted to let you all know what has been taking up my time. For the past week, I have been up all day and all night just trying to get this book done. It's been like when you are running in a race and you are aiming as hard as you can for that goal line, and you want to make it there as fast as you can and yet still run a good race. That is what this past week has been like.

Well, yesterday the tired finally caught up with me and I slept all day long. Then I woke up to a message on my answering machine saying that my ma's best friend's husband finally died. Don't feel bad! He was not good for her anyway! When I first met that jerk there was something about him that bothered me. And then this friend told me that he wanted to marry her, and they'd only known each other for 3 weeks! That scared me, for her sake! He never did anything for her, unless she paid him, and he made her pay half the bill any time he took her out on a date. That should have told her something right there. But this friend is like a newborn baby, her instincts are lousy!! She's too trusting and I know better than anyone that when you are too trusting, you're gonna get burned! My instincts are sharp, and I sensed this man was no good from the beginning. I tried to urge this friend not to marry that man until she got to know him better. But she didn't listen. She married him anyway. Less than 2 months after meeting him for the first time. I knew there would be disaster. Sure enough, he always insulted her, never took her side on anything, made her pay for everything, and tried to kill her twice during the course of this "marriage".

Well, he's dead now, thank goodness! He's been going downhill in his battle against liver cancer for the past 3 years, and it finally caught up with him this past week after spreading to his intestines, his stomach, kidneys and finally his spine. I say Good riddance! And my ma's friend is a free woman! She's going to go to nursing school to become a CNA. I'm so happy for her now!! I hope she learned something, but chances are she didn't. She's one of those types that thinks she cannot live without a man, and so she marries the first man who woos her, whether he is a scum bag or not. So MANY red flags went up with this man, and my ma's friend just let them slide off and laughed them away. He wasn't even good-looking!! He looked like a cross between a shaved chimpanzee and a donkey!! I didn't know what this friend saw in him. I could look past his looks if only he had treated her nicely. But he didn't. Not even close!!

As for me, well, I am still at work on this book. I'm on the hounds section now, and that is the longest and toughest section! There is a breed of hound out there for every country, city and village in all of Europe!! And I've got them all in this book. I actually began this book in 2000, and almost completed it then. But since then, some changes have been made. For example, AKC's list of recognized breeds has grown, so I have to update it. I would just go with the original that I typed out back in 2000, but the disk that I had stored this book on somehow got corrupted. So I have to do the whole darned thing over again!!! Oh well. The original book came to more than 500 pages. I'm going to see if I can do this one with less pages. So far, it's looking good. There is no real reason why I am doing this book, I don't think I will be putting it up on our UMG site, I don't have my supervisor's OK on this book. It's just a personal triumph. Something that I have deep in my bones, and I want to complete the book this time, and get it bound. It's probably going to be too expensive to put up on the UMG site, it's in color and already there are about 200 pages, just in breed descriptions alone. So, it's going to be a book I just print once, and then no more. And just for me. I even devoted this book and my work to my Groucho, I am doing it for her. So, I have to get this done. hehe!

Today has been a long and dull day! But it'll get better. Because today, I get the biggest, bestest birthday present ever! I'm getting a beautiful easy chair! It's called "the cuddler" and as far as I know, it's only available in one store. It's my birthday present to myself, though my sisses did help chip in a little, I couldn't say no when they offered. But mostly it's to me and from me. Here it is though, after 5:00 and I am still waiting! I'm getting tired of waiting!!!! But they called a couple hours ago and said they are on their way. So I have to wait. But it sucks when I want to leave the house and can't cuz I have to wait for the delivery men to come!!! I can't even go out for a walk!

Well anyway, that's what's been going on for the past couple weeks. Sorry I have not been around much.

hi. I am one of blogspots youngest members and i would like to befriend you. I really like your website and your dialogue is interesting. i myself am starting a project about an alien planet called Ossila. I have thought of many ideas for creatures and a tiny few for plants. i have selected geology and chemistry for the planet and i am hoping that someone will help me design it to be similar to your metazoica project.im hoping you, metalraptor and perhaps some others you know could dedicate your time to help me a little bit for my project. im planning on doing animations for geology, creatures and other things. thanks for reading this.

Well hello there animalloverlord42. You are always welcome to come here and learn. Metalraptor is a genius when it comes to helping others with speculative life, he can help you a lot. He helped me. You'll find we're a very friendly bunch here, as long as you understand we have our own opinions. I haven't been posting much because I've been busy with other things, but I will be back posting soon.

Anyways, welcome to our blog!

I'd be happy to help you animalloverlord42.

Name's Canis Lupis and I've got my own future evolution project going on, plus a considerable number of exobio projects.

I'm not as much of a genius as Metalraptor, but I do know my stuff.

My e-mail is: canislupis95@gmail.com

If you wish to contact Metalraptor, his is: neometalraptorcomix@gmail.com (that's going off the top of my head though)

Good luck and welcome!

animaloverlord42 said...

thanks. anyone got timgals or metalraptors emails. ive got canis lupus's already. this should be quite fun.

Timgal said...

You can always e-mail me at webmaster@metazoica.com. Metalraptor will have to give you his. I don't do things like that without the owner's permission. :)

animaloverlord42 said...

thanks. to help me, visit my blog at extraterrestrialking.blogspot.com/. hopefully, ill show (or at least describe) to you some of the creatures i have thought up of.

animaloverlord42 said...

by the way, when is your next update to the website? could it be getting new size charts, adding creatures and stuff like that. as my previous comment says, you can visit my profile anytime and try to hear from my first proper blogs.

I really cannot say for sure when I will work on Metazoica. I haven't forgotten about it though. I do this typically, I'll work on one thing for a while, then stop and go on to something else. As for now, I just finished a 500-something page book, and I'm still trying to cool off from that. I know I said I didn't want the book to be that long, but what else am I going to do about it? LOL!

I had a look at your blog, I'm assuming that's your project. Sounds interesting, though I must say speculative life on other planets is not really my thing. Not saying it cannot be a good project, just saying it's not my thing. Even so, I think it'd be interesting to see what you come up with.

animaloverlord42 said...

oh, sorry. lol. i can rely on metalraptor for help though, cant I? many creatures are based on Earth creatures so there is some purpose to using them as examples or inspirations. thanks

Timgal said...

It's no problem. Metalraptor's a cool guy, he helped me a lot. And, he's very good at coming up with ideas.
I'll keep watching your project to see how you do though. It's cool that you see our animals as inspirations, that's the way to go in my opinion.

Hey Paul! Haven't seen you here in a while, and I wondered what happened to you. Anyway, I've updated your link.
