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...

Part III of the Chessie series has gone up to cover the Giant Freshwater eel problem in the rest of the World:

To be followed by an afterword about Titanocongers, the BIGGER kind of giant eels (apparently exclusively marine), And today has a brief posting on Frontiers of Anthropology alerting readers to a site on Human Giants which incl;udes some of my material along with more evidence supplied by others:

Actually, that was the third article on medium-sized Giant eels that can go into freshwater, the followup concerns even larger Eels that are evidently exclusively marine.

Something is not quite right here because the Frontiers of Anthropology link does not work: it says there is no such page there while in fact there still is one. A lot of things have been going wrong on the 'net lately" somebody said it was the full moon.

Best Wishes, Dale D.
