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: Yesterdays News Today


It’s Saturday and time for the Saturday Soundtrack. Today’s song is in honour of our ill eel, Eel-ton John. It’s actually a favourite song amongst his kin: Dan-eel by Elton John.
Just two news items today:

Did gardener find fossilized footprint?
Chicken-hearted Tyrants: Predatory Dinosaurs As Baby Killers

And a very immature pun today:
what do you call a dinosaur with piles? Megasaurarse.

Oll, I've been having computer problems, but I did manage to post a few more stories before midnight last night - I think there should have been six in total yesterday.

Don't worry Gavin, I usually write yesterdays news today just before I go to bed and it must have been just before you posted the other stories, sorry about that. They'll be in the next YNT. Thanks for all the hard work you do by the way.
