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 community is the biggest presence for speculative biologists on the web.

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?
