Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

Just another reason why females are the dominant gender....

The last two weeks have been ridiculously hectic. We had a visit from Mr Biffo, the LAPIS Conference, an eel hunt at Coniston Water, and to cap it all, Corinna and I went to see Peter Gabriel at the Eden Project..

We have also published three new books and nearly finished the debut issue of our new Exotic Pets magazine.

I meant to write it all up - honest - but have been pipped at the post by my intended who has chronicled the last two weeks on Her Blog with far more flair and aplomb than I would have done.

So check it out...

I would be terribly jealous of the eel hunt if I were not scared silly by them.

Off to Corinna's blog!
