    Some kind of super "ALIEN"- type insect that is even more indestructible than the cockroach.   Derived from Trump's sperm and fecal matter

    Let me think: a entire race of beings thinking with one overarching mind.... 

    I think they are already running the US Senate.

    My nomination for the next dominating species would be Ants.

    They have a highly functional social order and based on my own personal battles with the little bastards in my home, they are a worthy successor.

    They may actually already have that dubious distinction. Right?

    I had to look this one up and I was surprised at how low my estimate was...
    The thinking is that there are approximately one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) ants living on the earth at any given time! 
    LOL
    After a billion (give or take),  who's counting?

    I think they are too smart to stick around after the disaster we have left it.

    Depends on what you mean by "dominant".

    If you're referring to shear numbers - insects are "dominant", currently.

    If you're referring to building a civilization - probably another primate species.  Or raccoons.

    The last to go will probably be certain species of nematodes.

    Tardigrades? They have been proven to survive anything, including dessication, the hard vacuum of outer space, primary cosmic radiation, nuclear irradiation and temperatures ranging from 400 degrees to minus 150. They're almost as hard to kill as Keith Richards.
