| 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. |

The thing lurking beyond the speed of sound
|The hyroalambat is a denizen of the African Jungle, descended from the modern day hyrax. It is about the size of a wombat and has cat like legs, except its claws are not retractable. Like its ancestor its a herbivore, however it is a frugivore unlike its ancestor. It is generally solitary, although it is not especially hostile to others of its kind and they occasionally form small family groups. This all changes in the winter when Males begin fighting each other with their powerful claws for mating rights. The males go through physiological changes during the mating season, with lots of fat relocated the face to protect them from injury during the brutal fights.|
