    If the humans of this planet fall by the way of the dinosaurs then what would this be a planet of?...Whats the next highest species?...A Planet of the Octopus, Planet of the Apes, Planet of the Dolphin perhaps?...What species could claim the planet and dominate it if the humans were gone?...

    I am no anthropologist, but I suspect that would depend on what caused our demise. For example if you subscribe to the dinosaurs being wiped out after an asteroid impact, well that changed the face of the earth in a major way with light and temperature.
    So give us a scenario, how did we come to an end, and what is the state of the earth after were gone.

    Oh, it will reverse all the way back to clams, starfish, jellyfish, lobsters, some fish, sharks, and sea whips... a few whales, It will be the Cambrian sea, and billions and millions of years later, it could find another version of Homo Erectus begins to restart the human race..

    I'd say Cetaceans.

    It could be Planet of the Argarthians who have a humanoid form and live in subterranean cities.

    On that topic, There is a game I have recently discovered. Small download, free to have.
    It is called Evolution.
    It is a bit of fun.

    In a few million years those Cetaceans may be able to build technology to get them above water for long periods of time...

    I'd say no.....they'd not be above ground.

    If something 100 miles across smacked the earth at 60 kps that would pretty much be it.

    We know that the dominant lifeform wouldn't be sh*t because the earth would have had the sh*t smacked out of it.

    Some bacteria might survive. The dominant lifeform would be the blob.

    Much over 100 km diameter you don't have to worry much about "dominant life".

    Assuming only the surface life is killed, then I guess underground species would come up and fight over the surface. Trash like grays and who knows what other slimy bastards. I hope there'll be a human survivor blasting them with a multi-barrelled shotgun.

    It might take rodents a while to come back as humans......but I think they'll be safe from grays.

    dolphins
    they are mammals too
    would it be really hard for they to evolve back to land?

    The scientific community accepts the theory of animal evolution beginning in the water and coming out to the land, unless I'm mistaken...
