    One more vote for rats for all the reasons of the other mammals plus they breed fast enough to create a race of mutants that may flourish in the mess we will have left...

    I watched this really interesting show on History Channel called Life After People a couple weeks back. Not sure if it's available online, but it was really worth a watch.

    This is to presume that humans have primarily inherited the earth..

    Good point! However, I am basing the premise on the fact that the geologists consider that the planet is in the era of the humans, the anthropocene. I suppose we don't have to agree with them

    Alright. Given that, I am going to go with... monkeys. Their aggression and greed would do well to fill the shoes of their forebears, even though they are our forebears.. Hmmm.

    I'm going to go with the bugs, based on sheer numbers. I think it's a reach to say that any of the other primate species will make the leap that humans did...I tend to think that we were a rather freak occurence instead of an evolutionary inevitability. I don't think that scavengers like rats will make it because we won't be around to leave our garbage.

    bacteria! The little guys have my vote... Why? Well for something to kill off all humans, it must be of significant scale to wipe out all mammals... and while we're at it... probably all birds, most reptiles and insects.

    Cockroaches are tough little guys. But hey, if they can survive, so can bacteria and yeast... However there are conditions where cockroaches can't survive but bacteria and co still can. So I pick them.
