I am new to this complex thematic community, on the old side of life (dob 1944). Have been interested in speculative views of the universe since I can remember. In college, that turned into an emphasis on what is now called neuroscience. In the mid-1960s, experimental psychology was trying hard to be "scientific," which meant ignoring consciousness. Eventually I ended up getting my Ph.D. and combining the study of the practice of psychotherapy along with philosophy and theology. The most fortunate part of this was the opportunity to gain some mastery of the metaphysics of Alfred North Whitehead (Bertrand Russell was his student, later they co-authored Mathematica Principia). Whereas Einstein's theory of relativity focuses on objects, what …
This is Jungle World. It is a underground world where there's mostly jungle. There are no ice caps: so it is very warm there, but despite that; there are also some cooler areas in there world. It has all species from different worlds. It has 11 species of people living there. The animal species that live here are mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, arthropods, mollusks, synapsids, dinosaurs and surprisingly mythical creatures! The island itself is actually a super continent somehow! (Despite the name!) Despite being mostly jungle, it also has a least a small desert, a lowland, swamps and the ocean has many strange sea creatures. The jawless fish and arthropods first colonize the land oceans and rivers. Then a few million years late…

Remember that the purpose of collecting all the files and information made from this fallen project is to collect and archive them for preservation and exibition, so if anyone wants to add their own ideas, they are likely to be deleted since this is not a community project, we are only compiling what was established as canonical before the page closed as some individual works made for the same authors.
In the event that there is still material that does not comply with these characteristics, then these will be removed.
I have recently discovered a very interesting article from Scientific American website, that goes deeper though the idea with the future fauna which is upon us, may actually look more like the wildlife from the past than we think. As well inspire newer speculation projects later on.
Don't belive me? Then just read the whole page yourself right here: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/laelaps/hot-fossil-mammals-may-offer-a-glimpse-of-natures-future/

You wouldn't remember me, I had a different account. I was previously known as SuperCash and as FutureTeleDood.
It's just what the title says and also check out the links below:
The New Ostracoderms: An Alternative Evolution
Also, my username there at the Speculative Evolution Forums is peashyjah.
I'm officially taking the New Pleistocene project under my wing. Much as I've criticized it, it's still a decent enough concept to work with.
I'll be working on the areas it covers one by one, starting with Australia, cutting out anything I find stupid or unnecessary, including creatures that were lifted whole cloth from other continua. In their place, I'll do my best to leave something decent behind.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but it's time to make this wiki great again.
Hi I'm new and I'm kicking off, I'm on iPhone 4 so doing some of the achievements is hard
This wiki is so good, and should change the front page, because it's still active and popular. I've had a great experience on this wiki and I'm gonna tell all my friends about it!!!
Just another reminder, please check out spec-evo.wikia.com if you are interested in this wiki. It is the new version of this place.
I recently watched a youtube video from Scishow Space (an interesting channel, you should check it out) about how, one of Saturn's 60 moons, Enceladus, could support life.
Enceladus is a moon of Saturn, wiht a diameter of only 500 kilometres, completely covered with miles of ice. Scientists once thought that liquid water couldn't possibly exist, but satellites report a gravitational peak in one area of Enceladus, where, strangely, there lies a massive depression in the ice. Scientists theorize that there is probably liquid water underneath that depression. In addition, Enceladus is probably tectonic and volcanically active, and volcanic activity underneath the surface could give a heat source, nutrients, and potentially anaerobic life that …
Like all projects, The Fate of the Earth has changed over time, but I'm starting to come up with a rough idea for how it should end up.
First, my to do list:
- Improve on all Quintenary habitats. This will include deletion and replacement of some creatures (especially implausible ones) and putting more detail into creatures. The goal is to get these articles up to the standards of the Neomesozoic articles.
- Write all Melacene articles. This will take a while, probably a month or two, unlike the improvement on the Quintenary, which should only take a week or two.
- Create flawless biomechanics for all Motophyta (a clade of mobile plants, which I've been thinking about since the beginning). Just this page could take up to a month, depending on how quic…

Giant newt (Triturus giganteus)- Giant newts are large pleurodelines (Newts), with an average size of 85cm, and some individuals reaching more then a meter. They are the top predators on the isle of Scott, which we know as the Scottish Highlands. They are endemic to this isle, as well as a select few surrounding isles.
Their skulls have a different shape then other caudates, it isn't as rounded as modern newts, but not as long as a alligator snout, it's more in the middle. This large size however, also posed a problem, how do meter long newts maneuver …
Insects have been evolving since the Devonian, and over 1 million species have been documented, with more to come. Their diversity and success is unlike any other group of animals. And yet, we see no large insects, none even comparable to usual tetrapods. With this many species, one would expect to have tetrapod-like insects, and yet nothing like them exists. There are three main reasons for this, and these are the lack of an internal skeleton, their exoskeleton, and their mode of respiration.
The thing that has made tetrapods so successful is their bony skeleton, rather than their limbs, or anything along that line. For example, take the megasquid, from The Future is Wild. It lacks a skeleton, being a cephalopod, and yet is the size of a l…
Prehistory Wiki is a wiki created by Ibexgod, and it goes well with Speculative Evolution Wiki. I have joined the wiki, and I would suggest other members of Speculative Evolution Wiki do also. It has been receiving some vandalism, though, but this is all the more reason to help.
Those who want to join, please mention it in the comments section.
Although this may not work well with this wiki, I have an idea for giving binomials to the species from The Future is Wild. So, here is my list (a work in progress).

1. Cladistic grouping requires a near-infinite set of nesting, which does away with the Linnean system of taxonomy. A well-known example is that the class Aves is part of the order Saurischia. Of course, there are more species of birds than would be able to fit in an order, and so birds are considered a class. Another example is the genus Varanus. Because squamata is such a diverse order, the monitor lizards were put into a single genus, while becuase of their diversity should be at least the rank of a family.
2. In order to retain monophyletic grouping, it must be established that the clades diverged at a specific time. The smaller groupings diverged at a time closer to the present. So, most species diverged within the last million years o…
One of the eternal questions of spec evo, one that has been covered in many projects, like the speculative dinosaur project, and by kaptainwombat, in the form of "What if the asteroid missed?". I would like to cover this, but will not create a project, instead I will summyrise my hypothised fate for each respective group in this post. As I a side note, thier fate doesn't look good.
Also, on the aforementioned spec, I don't like what they did. The pterosaurs are gone, dinosaurs have lost no power, and the shift of power hasn't changed, all the same dinosaur groups have the same niches, and few went extinct.

As stated yesterday, I will be revealing th first aniaml of of Sol: Bi. A newt. Please give feeback on this, i see no point in posting this if nobody read it.
Albino Irish newt (Lissotriton minor)- The albino Irish newt is a close relative of the Greater Irish newt, that reach 9cm in length. Contray to the name, the don't have high rates of albino individuals, aldo they exist. Instead they are named for their pigmentless colouration.
They are no longer then 9cm, with males only reaching 7cm, about half of which is tail. They lack colouration, with three subspecie even being transparent. Even in breeding season, they lack colouration, as they are incapable o…
As said in a previous blog post, no pages will be created for Sol. Instead I will be working on: Sol: The British Isles. Here is the summary. First creature to come tomorrow.
Like most of Europe, the former UK was heavily affected by rising sea levels. These changed climates, increased diversification, caused extinctions, and shifted the power of the animal kingdom. In the UK, this is particularly evident, what was once two defined isles, is now an archipelago. What was once a great place for human life, is now mostly shallow sea, what isn't, is small islands of temperate to subtropical forest. Sea birds are the most common life, while land mammals are no…
Hello, I'm JaggerTheDog, but in a different account.
My account just got blocked and I believe that its an error. I will use this as a temporary account until it gets fixed. However, it if doesn't this might be my permanent account unless I get banned for again for another unknown random reason or error. Wikia can produce a significant amount of errors at times, such as glitched pages etc.
The reason I wrote this up is that I have a feeling that people might not trust me or that they will believe that I am not Jagger. But I do have the same facebook and my information is correct, but I'm not revealing my personal information like age etc to avoid getting banned again.
What do guys think?
Wrote this up while working the rough draft for an idea of the birds of britain, the "uncool" ones that is (Aka the ones that are relitively unchanged.). Felt it would be usefull, and needed to be posted here.
Many projects on future evolution of the animals of earth focus only on a few species of a given environment, a snapshot of sorts. Aldo some may get of reasonably well, they still don't give the complete picture. This picture of an environment includes many species, some migrants, some rare vagrants, some of common residence. Those that fall into the former two categories are often skipped completely, however any modern environment has many such creatures, rar…
UPDATE: Being put on hold for lack of will to work on the subject. I will be working on the environmnt of Caldumorbis Britain. From now on will be working on one ecosystem at a time.
Sorry this was late, but it is done. I've created two new subfamilys of friut bat, one of which may become two sister taxon (Subfamilys.). Which could be split, I won't reveal, yet.
Bush bats: Bush bats, subfamily Parvadactylinae(“Small wing”) in linnean classification, Parvadactylia in cladistic, is a subfamily or clade of megabats that are endemic to northern Oceania from 4-20 Myf. They don't fly much, and many species are even bad at flight. They instead crawl around in tre…
Been watching quite a bit of Monsterquest recently, just watched the Chupacabra episode, it was determined that the chupacabra is indeed a coyote, but at the end of the episode the narator said this: "Is it possible that winesses are seeing an evolutionairy jump to a new species?"(Skip to last two or three minutes to hear statement.). It got me thinking, the specimens feutured in the episode did indeed have unusually large canine teeth, long foot claws, a oddly tall sagistal crest, as well as the fact that they seem to be extreamly suceptible to exteme casses of mange(Skip to 10:00 to see the large teeth and crest.). Opinions? Fanged canines? Saber-toothed canids?(last one is a bit overkill/unlikely.).
Perhaps a little off topic, but I have been informed that a new specie of tapir has been described. T. kabomani is a dwarf, dark coloured, cryptic tapir from the amazon. Didn't see that one coming. See tet zoo for more info, an intire article infact.
What fauna should inhabit the distant future?
Writh your opinions in the coments.
There are already several ideas, mostly reptiles, but we need more ideas fast.
Ideas will be posted in this page, Future of The World: The Distant Future.

This page is not up to date with the Sol project, and is left here as an archive/seperate spec ONLY.
As the titan seal and devil monkey pages are done (Posted, not done period.), and french rats are on hold, it's time for another preview, this time on the different bush deer. Perhaps a bit boring, as it isn't completly new, but it must get done sometime, sooner rather then later.
Southern bush deer: Southern bush deer, scientifically known as Exteriuscervus, are a genus of bush deer (Tribe calidaviriditasini), and the type species of the subtribe exteriuscervina. They are the largest bush deer, with E. litus of southern France being the largest bush deer kno…

As stated in my second blog post, I will be previewing animals planned for Sol, giving what will become the introduction. In these posts i will also give any other news about Sol, for convenience.
Titan seals: Titan seals, scientifically known as Titanopinnipus, are giant seals, the largest carnivorans ever, that live in Europe in the early Hiemsorbis. They are obligate carnivores, eating fish, cetaceans, and other pinnipeds. They are fully aquatic, and cannot go on land. There are three species, T. giganteus, the largest at 10m(30ft) long, T. gallico, the smallest at 5m(15ft), and T. communus, which is about the size of a northern elephant seal.(Page done.)
The problem of pointless and unused categories has bee brought up before, but not fixed, we need to go trough and clean up the categories.
This page is not up to date with the Sol project, and is left here as an archive/seperate spec ONLY.
I've got idea for SoL, but it's not nearly as conservative as the bush deer. I'm talking largest carnivoran ever, a 30-40 ft seal to be exact. It lives 8-12 Myf, and lives on skandia and northern Europe in the early Hiemsorbis. Is this at all plausible? More details will be given if necessary, and if it is plausible, I'll create a page.
Also, I will making blog posts about planned animals for SoL, a preview of sorts, for "peer-review" before bothering adding. This will prevent bad creature from ever getting past the alpha stage.
Pages currently don't have a standard layout, some have say, anatomy, others have description, some have diet and behavior in the same section, some don't, etc. I think we should make a standard layout to make the wiki look cleaner. This example is for an animal page. It might look something like this:
A basic idae of what the page is about, and if it's animal or other living thing, what it's like.
Gives an idea of the anatomy and addaptations of the animal.
It's covers the classification of the creature, potentialy includes a taxobox.
Covers the evolution of the creature, why, when, how, etc.

We're moving Future of The World out of this wiki for now. No edits on the page will be taken during this time.
Cancelled! Take too much time....l
We are going to move SE wiki to shoutwiki in a little while. Projects that are well thought out and well built will be moved. No project deletions will take place during this time.
I thought of some porject to do an alternative evolution of creatures from fantasy that are most common like Dragons, mermaids, unicorns and griffons for example. Inspired by the two documentaries about "Dragons: Fantasy made Real" and "Mermaids: The Body Found" so I thought what if they actually existed and how they evolved throughout their evolution. How they evolved, what their physiology may have been and how they could've related to the real world.
Saecula Novae is a forum for those interested in speculative evolution, established for those who wish to work on community projects in a forum-like environment. All are welcome.
I would like to establish a subforum there relating to The Future of The World.
I need some help to create the synopsis of the history of all tomorrows but not if the could make only
So, we've got some new editors recently. As I've never seen any of them before, they may very well have some people who are new to speculative evolution in general. Therefore, I am attempting to create a resource similar to that of the SCP Foundation's "List of Overused SCP Cliches" or whatever it is called.
This is not a list of "don't do this ever" it is a list of "if you do this, you should have several paragraphs of excellent reasoning backing it up or you're going to get called out on it." This is not directed at a person or project. This is a work in progress; if you have ideas leave them in the comments section, and either I'll talk about them or I'll add them.

Hello, I'm JaggerTheDog since the speculative dinosaur project has been offline since 2011 in this wikia, I would like to run a project to get all the pages of the speculative dinosaur project. I've started by writing the page Spec Mammalia: Cimolesta. I'm planning to now work on a page called Spec Mammalia: Cancridontia. If you wan't to help, you can find information and copy and paste the pictures and words. Also, if you want to help, write your username in the contribrutors section so i can track you. All the information about spec is on this website: Click here.
Okay, so far we don't have an in-house citation guide. Now, since we have almost no citations, creating one shouldn't be too difficult. I believe that it would be best to create one, since it would make the site look more professional, and provide more information about our sources so that every single person who wanted to know who created something did not have to look it up themselves. Furthermore, it would enable us to cite sources that were not on the Internet in a standardized fashion, while specifying page numbers.
So far I've been using APA style, but I thought it would be best to ask people what they think we should use.
Mea culpa. I screwed up, and I do not intend for something like that to happen again.

I've been cleaning up the categories, and I've noticed some grammar issues. We've got categories for 'After Man species' and 'After Man Species' and each of those are separate categories, and I think we can all agree that we don't need both categories.
So. Only capitalize the first word of a category, or words that are part of a title. Otherwise, it remains lowercase. And if you see a category that violates that rule, remove it.
Let's also get rid of 'And it lives 50 millio years in the future' and some other extraneous categories.
