I have been working on a story that takes place in the aftermath of a societal collapse from climate change. It takes place 80-100 years after the event and I’m trying to figure out what creatures would live and thrive in such an event.
Mundane ones would be crows, vultures and rats. Then there have to be ones that scientists made that are engineered to survive. The first one I thought of are called “goaffalo” which are a genetic hybrid of goats and buffalo. A kind of herd creature that people raise to live off old world garbage.
I guess another type could be a kind of camel or some such creature that survives without water. Others could have evolved by taking on a different diet, like locusts. I’ll have to think more on this…
Till next time!
