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...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

"What happened in the world of cryptozoology yesterday? I was under a rock.” I hear you cry. Well luckily there’s the CFZ daily news blog to keep you informed. Yesterdays stories were:

Couple trade two children for a bird
Dog, missing 9 years, returned to family
Hurrah, it's a Turtle With Two Heads
Britain's famous Canadian polar bear gets new digs
Illusionists in final tiger act
Ottawa seeks buyer for anti-sealing ship Farley Mowat
PETA to DA: feed Ebola-infected pigs before they are culled
Hamster Power: The Greener Cleaner
Race to save stranded whales

What did the rescuers say after they herded the whales back out to sea? “Hopefully, ‘whale’ not have to do this again soon.” (oh come on it’s not that bad, lets see you come up with better whale based puns).

Jon writes: "Oliver, I am very glad to see that you have given the bloggo readers a sense of porpoise"

Ohh God Jon that must be the worst one so far.
I must admit though even Im stuck for a Whale Pun.
As my dear sister would say "Isn't that a sign of the apocalypse".
