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.

I had a dream about a year ago (I think I'd been watching too much Primeval) which involved modern gorgonopsids. There was a white-and-blue one that ate someone (it could dislocate its jaw like a snake) and a larger, bipedal one that could change color and skewered meat on tree branches to lure in prey (this thing TERRIFIED me). There were also a couple of furry hypsilophodont-type things and some pterosaurs as well. What's really weird is that the gorgonopsids were furry, and I had never heard of furry ones before that.

I tried to get a project going with this, but it got shot down... :/

Looks like the lovechild of a Future Predator and a Yautja, with a little bit of amphibian thrown in.

I remember creatures in a dream last night... I can't remember what they were though.

Well, dreams are a way of compiling and sorting memories. Your brain uses them to "review" the memories in a way, so that's why your dreams have aspects of what happened during your day. If you had a busy day, your dreams are often more vivid and complex.

I had a dream where I was in a Minecraft world, and there were dinosaur-things everywhere. I don't remember the details, but I ended up chasing this Kaprosuchus/monitor lizard all over the place because there was something wrong with its legs.

(Repost; accidentally deleted the old one.)

Last night, I dreamt about some sort of massive, subterranean worm-thing. I don't remember much, aside from the fact that it was made up of multiple identical units/organisms, had a series of bluish discs on its back, and its front vaguely resembled a stylized Samurai mask with a human's upper body protruding from it. It was also benign and intelligent, and it could understand (but not speak) human language.
