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.

Eaten alive: Tristan Albatross chick massacred by invasive mice on Gough...

What do you all think? Perhaps a potential for some kind of bird-eating rat to evolve in the future?

Where Have I Been?

Been busy, that is why I haven't done the Family of the Week in a while. Been working on the Meet The Mammals section of this site and I seem to be on a roll!!! I've completed and posted 3 families over the past month. If you haven't already checked them out, please do so! They are worth a look. And I am currently working on another one that I hope to have put on the site within the next 24 hours. But so far, I have completed the Macropods, the Viverrids and the Procyonids. So, be sure to check them out. But looking at them, I realize I need many more than what I have posted. I was thinking about adding more palm (or tree) civets, and I got a couple new ideas while working on the kangaroo family. Who knows what I will work on next? Right now, I am working on the family of Metazoic beavers. I've got some new ideas to tweak for them. Not too new, I don't want to lose the characteristics Dixon set on them. But I've partially made them my own.

Right now, I am turning the Meet The Mammals section into basically nothing more than a visual checklist. Some of these animals I've never drawn or colored before, so they are just as much a surprise to me as they are to new viewers. Yeah, right now I'm about the numbers. But I do believe each animal should have it's own personality. For the time being, I am putting some pics up on the Facebook group, and there I will be discussing characteristics of these animals and what makes them unique. If you haven't joined the group yet, please do so at this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SpeculativeEvolution/ This is not the page, I gave that up. This is a group where you can post ideas, criticisms, other group activities, you can also meet others that share a common interest. I encourage anyone interested in speculative biology to join.

I would say I'll get back to the Family of the Week next week, but I don't know. I kindof really enjoy working on these mammal families. Whichever one I work on next will be a surprise, and based on what I feel like working on. Though I think the next family I work on, I'd like to be a marsupial family. Maybe the bandicoots. I did a lot of tweaking with them. But right now, I am busy with another family group, and I will be posting that one very soon. This is fun, but at the same time, it is difficult. But hey! If it was easy, it wouldn't be a challenge! Right?! LOL!
