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...

RICHARD MUIRHEAD ASKS...

Could this be a report of a Hungarian Reed Wolf?

A STRANGE ANIMAL
In the Liype Schanmburg forest at Turba, in Hungary, a peculiar animal was recently shot, which was at first supposed to be a very powerful fox. The Vienna zoologists, however, have shown that it is a cross between a wolf and a fox. Its form is that of a fox, but it has the colour of a wolf. Dundee Courier 28-1-1881.

LEST WE FORGET

A year ago today I was woken at just gone 8:00am by a phonecall from the vet. Biggles had died of massive organ failure in the night. We still miss you, little buddy (even though you bit the Fire Prevention Officer).

KARL SHUKER: A Unicorn Rabbit

Last week, it was all about Frank and Louie - the record-breaking, 12-year-old Janus cat, a cat with two faces.

This week, I have pleasure in introducing another furry wonder - a bona fide unicorn rabbit!
