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...

OK, this is 18 months old but I am posting it because I haven't seen this clip before. I make no claims for its veracity one way or another.

Is that the standard of ITN journalism these days? All that rubbish about finding a pair of shoes to fit that. Blimey!

I have no idea what they are.

This is one hominid that might possibly exist.

But I'm with Arthur C. Clarke on these creatures. If I had a $100 to bet, I'd put 40 on the yeti or Orang Pendek, 10 on the bigfoot, and keep the other $50.

Although I always support cryptozoological inquiry, I am a bit of a sasquatch skeptic. But if others have a different view, that's okay. I'm hardly an expert on those creatures.
