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


On this day in 2004 Peter Ustinov died. Ustinov is best remembered, by me at least, for his role in the steampunk classic One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing. He also played Hercule Poirot in six films and played pivotal roles in Quo Vadis, Logan’s Run, One of Our Aircraft is Missing, Tokapi and Spartacus, winning Oscars for best supporting actor for the latter two films.
And now, the news:

Open for Monkey Business
Dino Rod
'Miscommunication' led to giraffe remains in trash
Calne teacher tells of battle with crocodile in Malawi
Lucky he made the ‘snap’ judgement to kick the croc.
