Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

While unregistered users are able to browse the forum on a basic level, registering an account provides additional forum access not visible to guests as well as the ability to join in discussions and contribute yourself! Registration is fast, free, and instantaneous.

But remember, all cetaceans were supposed to have gone extinct in this project.
The bottlenose dolphin is a generalist, intelligent and has a worldwide distribution. It will get through the Holocene just fine.

Also the Shoveljaw is around the same size as my ancestor, maybe a few inches smaller.

I personally think this is a plausible concept as well, it's just that bottlenose dolphins are pretty specialized fast-swimming intelligent cooperative predators. I doubt they'll evolve into bottom feeders. Porpoises, on the other hand.....

They already do that wierd rubbing thing in the sand to get animals buried their. Why not specialize in that niche?
