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...

It is interesting to see that it has made the BBC news, several weeks after we covered it. However, my personal opinion of the story has not changed. Several of the bloggo readers have asked why we have not yet broadcast Mike and Greg Warner's video. This is because we have not received anything from them.

Out of interest, this video is the most recent thing to be embedded onto YouTube with the keyword `Yacumama`, and I sincerely doubt whether it is relevant...

It isn't very relevant but neither was that mudbank.Must have been the girls' serpentine gyrations that gave it the title. I checked out the report and apparently they showed the National Geographic Society and Queen's University ,Belfast 700 photos and 5 hours of video, when all us bloggers got was a lousy mudbank!Interesting that neither institution has had anything to say about the 'evidence'.
