speculative zoology is just a fandom for the Earth

alright so there's this chronological worldbuilding/ speculative zoology project called The World of Serina. It's awesome.

"Imagine, if you will, a hypothetical world much like our own, but populated only by a very small sampling of creatures, which were then allowed to evolve entirely on their own for hundreds of millions of years until their ancestors resembled them barely at all. Now imagine if those colonists were highly specialized creatures, animals which would never have the means to exploit as many varied niches anywhere else due to competition from other animals. Imagine an entire world where the only land animal present is a canary - a world without reptiles, amphibians, or mammals. This is Serina - the world of birds."

it essentially explores the radiations and adaptations of a single species into fulfilling every ecological niche that a whole world has to offer over the course of millions of years sites.google.com/site/worldofs

@LexYeen this is already my favorite thing and I've only known about it for a day


@starwall same and I've only known about it since you posted it
