Brexit has not only changed the political landscape but has also given rise to a number of new species in the Homo genus according to scientists. Here is a quick run through some of the newcomers.

Homo brexus


 – an ancient species that almost went extinct until Homo cameronda helped revive its fortunes in the 2016 referendus. The species has rapidly grown in numbers and habitat since this time.

Homo second-referendus


 – a new species of politician that arrived on the scene immediately after the split with Homo brexus in 2016. Some dispute its name as Homo peoples-votus.

Boris boris


 – a lone species that readily interbreeds with the Hominids.

Plankton corbynae (Plantae > Plankton)


 – a gentle creature which can often be found swaying passively in the breeze near thermal vents produced at manhole covers.

Pan faragis


 – an Old World species that inhabits mostly Britain and the Americas. The species has been on the retreat in Europe.

Pan rees-moggus


 – despite its lineage from Homo erectus, this creature prefers to spend most of its time lying on its back.

Pisces sturgeona


 – native only to Scotland, this species avoids all contact with its southerly neighbour Pisces albion (also known as taking-the-pissus).
