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...

DR BEACHCOMBING'S MID-ATLANTIC FROGS

"I'm very curious about the following entry and I wondered whether you'd ever seen it: the truth is I've worried about it for years and I hope to have at least a workable theory before I die. I've got in touch with a couple of cryptozoologists including yourself. Let me know if you have an expert opinion I can put up with a link back to your site for my readers".

THE FILM OF THE INDIA EXPEDITION

The first of two feature-length films due from CFZtv this year.

The YouTube blurb reads:

The latest feature-length film from CFZtv. At the end of 2010, a five man expedition from the Centre for Fortean Zoology went to the Garo Hills, in Meghalaya, Northern India to look for the Mande Burung - an Indian analogue of the Yeti. This is their story...

Directed and edited by Jonathan Downes for CFZtv




CRYPTOZOOLOGY: Two more from Dale - thunderbirds and a sea serpent

The latest update on the Indiana Thunderbird blog is now up:
http://frontiersofzoology.blogspot.com/2011/07/thunderbirds-in-indiana.html

Naturally it also makes a couple of references to Ohio and Illinois as well.

I went ahead and put through the next blog, mostly to get done with it; coordinating the photos and the illustrations were a problem;
