WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

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...

WE WELCOME CRYPTOSQUAD USA TO THE CFZ BLOGGO NETWORK

http://squadcrypto.blogspot.com/

We would like to welcome Nick Redfern and his band of merry men (and women) to the CFZ Bloggo network. I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier, but after a long day's toil in the digital vinyard, I was sitting up in bed last night drinking brandy and coke and pootling about on the internet using my laptop. There were so many great articles on the CryptoSquad website that I wanted to share with the readers of the CFZ bloggo, that the only logical thing to do was to bring them online.

For example...

A slightly disturbing account of what appear to be modern manifestations of an ancient Seminole snake demon in Oklahoma; a little known zooform phenomenon Read on...

As Richard Freeman is so fond of telling us, the popular image of the yeti as being covered in white fur is completely erroneous. However there is a white coloured bigfoot type creature from Oklahoma. Read on...

A peculiar jellyfish which seems to be functionally immortal, has started colonising the world's oceans from its origins in the Caribbean. Most jellyfish die after breeding, but these peculiar animals seem to be able to regress into a juvenile polyp state and start all over again Read on...

Nick Redfern has done a remarkable job bringing together such a disparate team of researchers, and the range of topics on offer is certainly a heady brew, but the CFZ has always been a remarkably broad church (which is exactly how I always planned it).

You were pootling in bed? I'm not sure what that is, but it sounds a distinctly unsanitary practice.
