Long Earth 1, 349,877 (Earth West) is a different sort of Jokers World. It combines the usual run of recognisable life forms which are clearly related to those of Datum Earth. But it also has a co-existing parallel ecology which is completely alien, both trees of life flourishing together on the same world. There is speculation concerning a "Huge God" which fell to earth an unguessable time ago, whose corpse carried bacteria and other organisms enabling a new and strange exobiology to take root here.
