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...

CRYPTOZOOLOGY AT THE ZSL











REBECCA LANG: Christian the Lion

Hi Jon,

Thought you might be interested in this news story given Christian the lion was originally purchased from Harrods! Of course the whole Christian story inspired a lovely film and a reunion with Christian and his owners. And of course there's the antipodean connection - with Rendall and Bourke being Aussies!

Cheers,

Rebecca

CRYPTOZOOLOGY: Thylacine footage from 1931

I was aware that there was film of the thylacine kept at Beaumaris Zoo at Hobart in 1931, but I was not aware that it had been taken by naturalist David Fleay (the first person to breed platypus) and until today I don't think that I had seen all of it.
