Encyclopaedic Bestiary

Page 1



In a parallel universe, planet earth is populated by animals slowly adapted to the human technology. After the 2075 crisis, all the inhabitants of the planet had to readapt to the new environment. In that time, animals were almost extinct or kept in special areas and reserves. After the second crisis in 2087, all the electronic appliances were unable to restart due to a solar storm and a magnetic field disruption. Human species were unable to adapt and almost disappeared. Other species gradually learnt to keep track of time, make housework and, also, make a cup of tea. The preference of simple tasks and routines in their adaptation is due to the technological crisis. This volume collects the main features of some of the new species in the animal kingdom. Volume two of this modern encyclopĂŚdia is about new plants and fungus.
