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

Yesterday’s News Today

Stop, what you’re doing now and pay attention. It is of vital importance that you read every one of the following cryptozoology related news stories from the CFZ’s daily cryptozoology news blog and memorise them. Why? Well should your vessel be captured by the king of Spain and you are unable to singe his beard, you can distract him by relating these tales and following bad pun while you make good your escape.

(Yeah, I know it makes no sense but nobody reads this bit anyway and they just skip to the news links, so it matters not).

Giants of the seas arrive in Cornwall
Isolated Forest Patches Lose Species, Diversity

What did the meteorite say just before it crashed into a man?
