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 has been several weeks since we last heard from Mike and Greg Warner who, earlier in the year, undertook an expedition to Peru in search of giant snakes. We received an e-mail from them yesterday evening, which we reproduce in its entirety without editing:

Hi John

We are beginning to release the data from site 2 of our expedition which few, if any, people know about at this stage. Again,we are offerring CFZ first option.

In locating and recording site 2 we believe we have discovered the thermal lake that Franz Herman Schmidt & Rudolf Phleng discovered in there encounter with the South American Dragon related to Mokele-mbembe, Quetzalcoatl or the Sirrush which is recorded in Bernard's "On the Track".

Here is the link to the video release at our website http://www.bigsnakes.net/


We have also received the first scientific analysis of our data from a world renowned scientist & cryptozoologist (who was recommened by your own consultant Dr. Karl Shukar) and will be releasing this to you soon which we think you will find surprising & valuable.

We are looking for answers like anyone else; feel free to re-evaluate your comments at any time.

Kind regards

Greg & Mike Warner
