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 Species Added

I have made some more additions to the Metazoica lineup. I've made more new species. Mostly bats. I am still determined to hit that 10,000 species mark! That is, 10,000 species of mammals. That's been my goal almost since the beginning. Though looking at this goal from a 1995 viewpoint, I wanted to have that goal completed by the year 2000. It didn't happen though. I don't have a year point, per se, to reach this goal toward. I just want to hit 10,000 different mammal species. PERIOD.

I've mostly been focusing my attention on the bats, namely the Pteropods, the true rats and mice the Pseudomyids, antelope of the family Megalodorcidae, and the therapedidae. Though I've scattered different and new species all over, not just in those families. I was trying to remember all the different animals over the past year that I have discussed with other future evolution fans. I've even added a couple of new families. Besides the obvious naming some of my animals after my Facebook and MySpace friends, I have also added:

  • a mongoose-like opossum
  • antbird-like pteropods both for the old and new world
  • a large pteropod called a "fruit-cow" (not cow-like!)

And more! These animals will show up in the new version of the Metazoic check-list, which I won't add to the site just yet. I'm on a role!! I won't be posting up the new checklist for quite a while.

Antbird-like pteropods, huh? Cool, but I still think you should leave SOME niches open for the non-flightless birds. Just a thought.

I know. I really want to have a world dominated by mammals though.

On your checklist, none of your families go beyond 100 million years from now. What happens then?

Timgal said...

That's when the Metazoic ends.

Another question: On your checklist, the only species you have in New Zealand are those little kangaroos. Wouldn't there also be descendants of sheep, cattle, canines, felines, and other introduced mammals too? Or is New Zealand still mostly a land of birds in the Metazoic?

Sheep and cattle I might have to get back to you on. But I might make a predatory descendant that feeds on the kangaroos. Possibly from the weasels. That is a good idea. In that case it might be a good idea to have a small descendant of maybe sheep roaming the island.
