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...

ROBERT SCHNECK: Sylvanic Nondescript

Todd Standing claims that this is a picture of a Bigfoot which he photographed in the "Sylvanic" forest. I would eat my own head before suggesting that someone is fibbing, but whatever this is, it resembles Charles Waterton's "Nondescript".

The texture of the face is probably suede.

The face is constructed to look like the COMPUTER-ENHANCED face of "Patty" which has lips and other features brought up be manipulation. The original "Patty" is not so clear and does NOT show distinct lips, nose, or any such features.

Any depiction of a "Bigfoot" which is based on the COMPUTER-ENHANCED version of "Patty" is likely already in error since that version is basically a fantasy depiction nothing like what was actually shown on the film. And strangely enough a good many people think that version IS the original "Patty" of the Patterson-Gimlin film.
