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.

I Have Decided

 Lately, I have been working a lot on my Metazoic mammal checklist. I have been inspired. Now, I am taking to naming some of the animals on that list after famous historical figures, like my favorite actors and composers and musicians. Even some modern actors that are worth falling for. There aren't many, believe me! But I do have a few newbies to the checklist. I am still trying to reach that 4000 species goal. Once I do that, I'll try to go for another 1000 species. Then another, and so on and on. I intend to make this my greatest accomplishment ever! I already have animals named after old buddies I've had on Facebook, even though I am not speaking to most of them anymore. But their names still fill a void. Hard as that is to say! At the same time though, very enthralling! Anyways, they are there, and there's nothing I can do about it now. To erase any of them now would be like seeing that species go extinct.

I've added to some families, and even created at least one more whole family. Now, I have decided to do something I've never done before. I have decided to publish the checklist and offer it available on this website. This is just the checklist. There's little more info than what is already on the list. Just that now there are all new species, I've changed some generic names as well, and even added one new family to our line up. But this is not the Metazoic book with pictures and information about each species. I am still working on that. But this past week especially, I've been brainstorming some new ideas for more new species. So, if anyone is interested, I will have the printed checklist available for sale perhaps by this weekend. This will soon be all that is available. I'm thinking of taking down the freebie list from this website. Though I don't know that for sure yet. But personally, I always prefer to have a printed copy of any list, as opposed to just a digital copy.

I may even get crazy and have a contest of some kind where someone can win an autographed copy of the checklist. Autographed by yours truly! ME! I will post the link on this website as soon as it is available.
