If all of man disappeared, what would be the new dominating species from wikingofthenorth
Certain apes in enviorments nearly untouched by man have actually reached the Stone Age more or less, using tools and weapons made out of stone to complete tasks. It is no doubt that we are holding every living mammal back from evolution. So it depends how far these apes have gotten when we disappear. Although, if we disappear they’ll most likely have disappeared too. Hypothetically though…
It would take a lot of time even after we were gone, and there would be a different dominant species on each continent.
Lions (more specifically the lioness, lions are useless) would probably dominate most parts of Africa.
I’m putting my money on the wolf in North America and maybe the Jaguar in South [America]?
In Asia I’m guessing either the Leopard or the Tiger, if they choose to cooperate they are a certain win but I doubt that will happen
Wolves or Lynx for Europe and my beloved apes for Australia
Basically I put my faith in any feline/canine creature if our distant relatives the apes should fail.
Thank you for an interesting question, please ask more like this and/or discuss it further with me if there’s something you’d like to add or that you disagree with :)
