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...

Now if you had a hundred identical and independant sightings of the supposed Loch Ness Monster in that same physical conformation, you might have a point.

As it is, you have one obviously faked photo. for one thing, the supposed monster rides much too high in the water to be physically possible.

I'll go easy on you, find a dozen similar reports showing supposed lake monsters of those exact proportions and I'll admit you are not going at the thing arse-end-forewards and forcing your base data to conform to the results you want. Otherwise you are pursuing a faulty and fallacious methodology that is all too common among Lake Monster theorists. This is the identical method used by cheap journalists.

It's not that I have no sense of humor, but I have a point to make and in fact you and Max have made my point for me.
