|The Solar System's Future; My First Project!|

Hi guys, this is my first project here on Speculative Evolution, which I call "The Solar System's Future".
Welcome to a million years into the future. Here, humans thrive on Earth, The Moon, Venus, and Mars. Us humans have also been tampering with genetic engineering and cloning, bringing mammoths, thylacines and pyrenean ibexes back into extant status, while also altering DNA of animals such as the duck-billed platypi, tasmanian devils, and ring-tailed lemurs. On the human's other space colonies, both animals of Earth and creatures that once lied dormant on Mars live together, supplying humans with food.
Does this sound interesting to you guys?

Fire alone will save the Clan...
|I really like this project. Perhaps there is a large Martian creature released from the Martian ice as well. It would just have to be one that hasn't been discovered yet. Would you also give a list about what extinct animals were brought back to life? And perhaps man could also inhabit Europa, Jupiter's moon. You could even add some native Europan (not European! ) animals that live in the oceans of Europa.|

I'm not sure exactly what creatures will be brought back from extinction, but I know that I want the Wooly Mammoth, Thycaline, and the Pyrenean Ibex to be cloned back. Also, some extinct animals have been rediscovered; Neanderthals and Florensies (Not correct spelling?) have been rediscovered, and renamed "Dawrf" and "Hobbit", respectively. Dodos and Moas have also been rediscovered.
Mars is one of my favorite subjects on here. There is 5 classes of known martian animals. There's a fish analogue, an amphibian analogue, a reptile analogue, and a mammalian analogue. There's also a gastropod-like analogue. The fish through mammal analogues are hexapodal. Most species' extra limb pair have been reduced into shield/shovels used to protect themselves from the random sandstorms. I'm not sure about the polar caps, though a large marsmammal up there would be interesting.
Europa being inhabited is something I forgot to mention up at the first post. It's mainly inhabited by cave-dwelling natives, but Britain, the US, and China have colonies there. The ice has been rapidly melted using technology, revealing primitive continents and primordial oceans.
I'll treat you to an engineered species after those 3 paragraphs.
Ancestor: Duck-billed Platypus
With the prefection of genetic engineering, platypi were one of the first species to be altered. Humans considered the duck-billed platypus an evolutionary dead-end, with no stomach and not very good on land or in the water. The platypus's DNA was altered, giving it fur on it's "bill", repairing it's stomach, and removing it's webbing on it's toes.
Question: Do platypi have teeth?
