* ScienceMarchesOn: A lot of the science was already shaky in the 80s and thirty years of scientific advancement haven't done it any favors.

* BatOutOfHell: There's a newly formed Pacific archipelago inhabited by various strange species of flightless bats. Probably the least scientifically plausible of the creatures presented (there could be flightless bats, but it'd be unlikely they'd produce forms like the nightstalker). That said, [[{{Homage}} at least they inspired]] ''{{Primeval}}''[='=]s "Future Predator" and Subulba from ''Star Wars Episode One: Film/ThePhantomMenace''.

Added DiffLines:

* LivingShip: In a land-going variant, one of the antelope species has a double-ridged back lined with long fur. Insect-eating birds nest in the groove between the ridges, giving their young a free ride along with the antelope herds, while the antelope gets a reliable tick-removal service and is warned of predators by the birds' alarm-calls.

* YouDirtyRat: The rats have become the earth's principal predator group, taking over the place of the carnivorans, while mice are... well you know, mice.

* RodentsOfUnusualSize: Rodents are, in fact, the dominant predators of the new world (despite many other more plausible candidates, like shrews & other insectivorans). Some weird things like the aquatic, hippo-like Mudgulper or the kangaroo-like desert leaper are present as well.

* MessyPig: Various species and even entirely new families of herbivores evolve from them. Most are pretty believable. The Turmi, an anteater-like pig, less so - it would be implausible for it to survive for long, since pigs would have to eat a lot of termites to sustain themselves. It would have to keep continuously eating and not move at all.
** Still possible, as it's never said how large the turmi is supposed to be, so it might be the same size as the RealLife aardvarks or anteaters that get by just fine that way.
