WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

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...

NAOMI WEST: Puddle Monster V - The Terror Continues

I was gone all day today, running errands. When I got home, I was startled to discover a gathering of Wiccans surrounding my valve box, attempting to call up the puddle monster. I guess word travels fast. (I hated to interrupt, but I had to request that they leave because my husband needed to trim weeds.) However, apparently their ritual worked because after dark I was able to catch the clearest picture yet of the monster. I have already been accused of photo-shopping, but I give you my word that this picture is authentic. I feel very honoured to have this mysterious and elusive creature living in my flooded valve box. I am appealing to the Environmental Protection Agency, as my husband is making plans to repair the valve box and ruin the monster's habitat.

Seriously.......Why don't you and/or your husband find a nice water habitat for the frog so he/she won't miss the valve box.

Oh no,
Its the dreaded Rana pipiens, or the North American Leopard Frog. Certainly a terror as it eats it's prey alive.

Seriously, this is the head of a Leopard frog, GOOGLE IT.

Oh no, its the dreaded Rana pipiens, more commonly known as the North American Leopard Frog. A terrible creature known to catch and eat its prey alive.

Seriously, this is a Leopard frog, Google it.

Sorry, double posted earlier, didn't mean too.

I know it's a Leopard frog. I was just having fun. They are incredibly shy creatures, aren't they?

I intend to either take him down to the creek or create a habitat. For now, we are leaving the valve box alone.
