This page marks the beginning of a new series. The only problem: what is with that name?

First of all, this series will be doing profiles and Q&A on creatures like the mammoth and the saber-toothed tiger. These creatures would normally just be called prehistoric but since there is no such thing as prehistory (before written record; the Bible records from the first second of time until the last) I had to call them something else. After some Hebrew and Greek word-searching I came up with Zooneden. These are two words mean “beast” (zoon, Greek) and “Eden” (eden, Hebrew). In short Zooneden means “beasts of Eden”.

Of course, all creatures were Zooneden but since we have names for dinosaurs, pterosaurs, pliosaurs, plesiosaurs, etc. I figured a name that would be easy to understand (and pronounce ZOO-KNEE-DEN) would be able to encompass the animals that will grace this series.

Some of the more famous creatures that will be in this Zooneden series are:

Wooly Mammoth

Smilodon – Sabre-Toother Cat (Tiger would be the incorrect saying)

Mastodon

Megaloceros

And many, many more.
