here you should post your ideas

i have idea

about genus of european badger descendants,that are actually smaller tahn bear,except for biggest species which is big as brown bear.Unlike bears,they are more omnivores(during early medieval,brown bears were more carnivores than today)

carnivorous red squirel descendant-as plague of grey squirels continues trought europe,some red squirels became more agressive and later starting eats more meat,they are slightly bigger than today red squirels an have same colour,sharper teeth and eats arboreal mammals,raid nests,but also eats nuts etc,so they are in fact omnivores,so it dont competes too hard with descendants of cats,mustelids etc.

genus of descendants of civets,which became bigger and are in fact analogues of leopards.They later spread to europe and asia.


Dingo descendant,which hunt very fast herbivores(australian cheetah :D )

Carnivorous squirrel idea is already taken.

There are already leopard analogues in Africa from cats (I don't think it was accepted yet though).

Australia is scarce, so the dingo idea is a good one. As long as it's in the outback and not in the territory of my Carnivowary's!

Just wondering has my Hydrus been accepted yet?

First it goes through discussion. After a while the poll gets set up, and then people vote.

I had an idea for a dingo descendant just like that in the Neozoic-- I call it the Horridingo. Consider it accepted for MY project!

its onivorous,just like pig,mine is smaller and little more like cats...and i dont think that big cats analogues must be always descendants of smaller cats

Well as far as Australian ideas go, how about a hippopotamus-esque descendant of water buffalo in the north.
A few medium sized predatory cats. Large stocky thick coated horses in the alpine-ish regions in the south east.
Mosquitofish are a notorious pest that aren't going anywhere and Australia is notorious for its dry spells, maybe someone could come up with some novel drought adaptations. Backpacking maybe?
Cane toads have a ridiculous amount of potential. Various more specialized insectivores, detrivores, small unspecialised carnivores, perhaps even an arboreal species?
Cursorial goats. Heavy browsing camels.
Wind pollinated eucalypts is an idea that I had in my botany course last semester when our lecturer mentioned offhandedly that their flowers are essentially transitional between insect pollinated and wind pollinated.
Small fennec fox carnivoran (fox or cat descendant) specailised in hunting the ridiculous lizard diversity in the hummock grassland communities.
Carcass scavenging goannas.
EDIT Oh, also flying foxes have massively extended their ranges mostly due to human activities, maybe when all the agriculture and human fueled food supplies peter out they could start looking for alternative food sources, and one of the outcomes is a Megachiropteran vulture?
I'll go read the noxious weed lists and see if I can come up with any cool plants.

JohnFaa created Aendochiroptera which are descendant of flying foxes and are now it the accepted list, I think there was a vulture like form in there.
Personally I think the vulture niche in Australia would go to the wedge-tailed eagles which are going quite well now and are the closest thing to a vulture in Australia. But one of those flying foxes could also take that niche.

That's true actually. They're pretty amazing to watch.
I had one stalking me once when I was out for a walk, more than a little freaky.

I was just throwing ideas around without thinking too much about them.

But goats are better than donkeys ;)

The Giant Squirrel has not been accepted, so the red squirrel idea is still possible.

Submit your creatures! Revive this project!

The feral donkey populations are all located located in Northern Austalia, especially around the Kimberly region.
I don't think the feral horses are going anywhere anytime soon. Population at about 300,000 and they are one of the most intensely managed feral pest animal in Australia.

You could always go along and make a Kimberly donkey as well.

A donkey hunting Carnivowary. A little more research on those Australian donkeys and I got my first prey item for my Carnivowary.

What's wrong with macropods, goats and pigs?

Nothing. Just that I have no idea for macropods, I hate making pig descendants, I have no goat descendants ideas, and my carnivowary's are hungry.
