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...

I don't think that we covered this? It is nearly a year old, so forgive me if this is something that has been solved elsewhere. I'm damn sure its not an alien. But what is it?

It is,without a shadow of a doubt.
An Outer Space space monster from outer space.

It is the head of some mammal, probably a lamb or goat, still-born with a major developmental defect which has resulted in it having only one eye, and no nasal system to speak of. Odds are it aborted from its mother at a fairly late stage of development, and was found by human nincompoops before the local scavengers got to it.

A deformed foetal calf.

I to think this could well be a deformed lamb foetus. I think the ears and small mouth make a lamb a good possibility.
