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


As this might well be the last YNT for a few days due to Weird Weekend and I once heard the advice that it is always best to leave on a song, here is a nice little ditty for you: http://www.last.fm/music/Al+Stewart/_/Time+Passages?autostart

Of course if there is a YNT tomorrow all that will be negated, but hey, here’s the news:

Giant 'meat-eating' plant found

'Palace Puma' big cat spotted in Crystal Palace
Woman says she was bitten several times by otters
Twiggy the Eagle Owl learns to fly
Killer whales visit 'social clubs'

The younger ones visit after ‘school’ clubs.
