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...

ROBERT SCHNECK: No Hand Puns please

Whatever motivates Guido Daniele to make his art must be a powerful and perverse force. He combines painting, photography, modeling, and natural history to make beautiful yet disturbing images of animals,
plants, and whole landscapes.

So look at his gallery and let's all give Guido Daniele a big hand!
(Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha!)

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

http://cryptozoologynews.blogspot.com/

On this day in 1906 Lon Chaney Jr was born. He became famous for his many roles in Universal Pictures monster movies, including his most famous role as the Wolfman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTNQEd8D4pg
And now, the news:

Rare ocelot sighted in Southern Arizona
Polar scare! Children swim inches from monster bea...
Banyoles, where Nessie's Spanish cousin lives
'Super pack' of 400 wolves terrorise remote Russia...

Well, look at the last story there and now marvel at how I deftly manage to get today's vaguely related video, vaguely related to that AND vaguely related to today's anniversary:
