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


Today is Friday so that means as well as the latest cryptozoology news from the CFZ daily cryptozoology news blog, updated daily by Mr Wilson (not to be confused with the other Mr Wilson), followed by a stale old pun based upon one of the news stories, provided by yours truly, there is also the announcement of tea of the week. This week it’s been nice and sunny so I’m going to recommend Twinings green tea with jasmine, as it’s a nice refreshing brew on a hot day. And now, the news:

Eight-legged smile
'Yowie not to blame for death'
My calf's got two noses
Black cat was lucky spot for Craig
Curator on trail of sea monsters, serpents
'Missing link' fossil seal walked
The feast of Bodmin

It probably thought that it was doing it’s ‘civet’ duty by cleaning up the food that was littering the town…(Hah! Bet you expected me to just be lazy, use the story before and mutter something like “that gets my ‘seal’ of approval”, or a “but how does he smell” gag about the calf story rather than that gem, didn’t you?)
