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...

KITHRA ON FLYING HUMANOIDS

Stories of Flying Humanoids have been around for an extremely long time, but we have to start somewhere, so I’ve chosen just a few of the more well-known cases, starting from the middle of the 19th Century. But, of course, if you use Google you'll find a great many more.

the 1877 Brooklyn sightings insinuated that people were seeing the Jersey Devil. This may be so and if it is so, then paradoxically the sightings become some of the clearer and more definite sightings of the Jersey Devil, and implying it is a large bat.
Moreover I am also inclined to call the 1950s Brazil case and others in Latin America, especially Mexico, as Giant bats. Mexico does have a history of screaming flying witches, and it has been suggested by L. Taylor Hansen that these sightings are misunderstood sightings of large condor-like birds.

Best Wishes, Dale D.
