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.

Yet More Name Changes

I am currently working on the family of antelope of the Metazoic, the Megalodorcids. In the process, I made some name changes along the way. Some of the names seemed too simple, and I got some ideas from a paper I saved about how to come up with scientific names. So, what I did was I changed some of the names of some of the animals. I wanted to make them sound like they would if the animals were around today, being named by the people of their native lands. So, this is what I came up with, partially thanks to some friends and Google Translate, LOL!

Anatolopis is now Dakpil.
Maxibos is now Kaela.
Myodorcas is now Tziki.

Also some more names have been updated...

Minopileatus is now Sacouloforeas.
Eopithecus is now Neadapis.
Planodon is now Platodon. I just changed the spelling a little, it still means the same thing.

These are some of the changes to the Megalodorcidae family. I also split some of the genera into sub-genera groups. For example, Megalodorcas now has been separated into 4 subgenera: Megalodorcas, Xionibos, Afrotaurus and Paleador. The genus Azema has also been divided into 3 sub-genera: Eugazella, Chamma and Azema. These will all be listed in the latest version of the Metazoic checklist, which I will be putting up shortly.

If there are any more changes to the list, I will be putting them in this post.
