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...

RICHARD FREEMAN: White yeti query..

Dale, could you give me some details please? I have never come across a single report of a white yeti (I have just completed a hefty list for the History Channel of all the yeti sightings that I could find, and all describe a dark-furred animal). The sasquatch and the almasty are the only ones I can recall that have occasionally been reported as sporting white fur.

On The Track Of Unknown Animals mentions a couple of reports of white Yetis of large size, but ften thought to be untrustworthy accounts. That does not matter in the case of saying that such reports EXIST: such reports do indeed exist, whether they are disputed or not.

In going through the TRADITIONAL images of the larger Tibetan Yetis (What Sanderson calls Dzu-Tehs) there are several depictions of them as white. One of the Bhutanese stamps illustrates an example, and I have posted it on my blog before here.

Once again, it does not matter how you evaluate the evidence, the Allegation is indeed genuinely part of the record.

And, BTW, you could very easily have asked me at my regular email. I could very likely have completely missed your question posted on the blog like this.

Best Wishes, Dale D.
