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.

Notice The Ticker Moving?
Also among the animals I've added this past week, a large, bear-like descendant of the marmot, a giant bushbaby (actually the size of a medium dog), "mouse-wallabies" which are very small kangaroos that live in underground burrows, and a few more species of bats, named for some new Facebook friends I got over the past month or so. I will be putting up the new checklist when the new site is posted. Would anyone like to contribute to the new site? I'd really appreciate your help. I need to raise $650 to complete the construction of the new site. If everyone could just give one or two dollars a piece, it'd help out a lot! Or whatever amount you'd like to give is most helpful. If you'd like to contribute to this fund, please click the picture link above to donate. The finished site will be worth it, believe me! And those who contribute, I'll see that you get either free or discounted membership!
I've been thinking over the membership portion of the site, it's going to be fun! I'll have videos of these animals in action, video games, members can even rate and comment on each of the animals posted. Oh yes! Remember to check out this week's Family of the Week! It's the true shrews.
You might remember that I contributed the Nycterofelines (late-surviving Ailurocyonids that became arboreal), but I have another suggestion for your site. It's a type of rodent I call the Hiverat, that lives in the deserts of North America. Hiverats are eusocial, like naked mole rats, living in colonies of several hundred. The largest is the queen, who can be up to four feet long. They live from twenty to twenty-five million years from now.
I really like this idea. Thank you Squibbonator! :)
