Box #: 2376
Contains: Homo interstella
Description: Species adapted to life in the vacuum of space.
Distinguishing features: Relatively fragile skeleton. Expanded ribcage for increased lung capacity. Skull capacity of 1600cc. Abdominal implants to aid in the voiding of waste.
Added notes: Only intact specimen, the rest lost after orbit decay.
Box #: 8446
Contains: Homo proelius
Description: Species specifically engineered to serve as soldiers of war. Possessing an unusually dense skeleton, fast-twitch muscles, and a metabolism 4.8X higher that of Homo erectus.
Distinguishing features: Abnormally enlarged canines. Rapid maturation rate. Sagittal crest, indicating jaw strength equal to a common Pan troglodytes. Vestigial genitalia.
Added notes: Average lifespan of 6-8 years.
Box #: 5610000
Contains: Homo radiensis
Description: The skeleton of a species that chose to inhabit the surface contaminated with nuclear fallout.
Distinguishing features: Degraded skeletal structure due to the metabolism of radioactive agents. Jawbone has dissolved from body processing Strontium-90 as calcium. Skin covered with carcinomas and sunless “Chernobyl” tan.
Added notes: Specimen emits 2.6 Sv of radiation at all times, box must be lead-lined.
Contains: Homo cardifferi
Description: Specimen taken from a failed colony at Cardiff.
Distinguishing features: Due to a genetic bottleneck, specimen is possessed of several recessive genetic traits as well as an enlarged heart and other physical ailments. Skeletal structure indicates the specimen was unable to walk or sit upright due to crippling arthritis.
Added notes: Specimen was four years of age.
Box #: 42X1034
Contains: Homo bovinus
Description: Species specifically designed to serve as supplemental food source.
Distinguishing features: Shortened limb growth. Abundance of fatty glands and outsize sexual organs. Implanted rumen to aid in the digestion of a vegetation-heavy diet. C-curve of the spine, indicating the specimen was quadrupedal.
Added notes: Brain shows signs of heavy protein starvation, limiting neural activity.
Box #: 86X1090
Contains: Homo kelvinus
Description: an attempt by scientist Homer Kelvin to repopulate the earth through genetic manipulation.
Distinguishing features: none.
Added notes: All specimens genetically identical to Dr. Kelvin.
Box #: [number is scratched out]
Contains: Homo aeturnus
Description: The last, the ultimate human being. Man, so warped by his own hand, sought to engineer the architect of the end. A specimen that would live a span of indeterminate longevity, created for the sole task of categorizing his fallen brethren.
Distinguishing features: Lack of genital structure. Cells infinitely capable of producing telomerase, escaping the Hayflick limit. A skull capacity of 2800cc.
Added notes: The box is empty.
