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 do wish people would stop calling these creatures 'chupacabras' when they most certainly are nothing of the sort. However, look on the rump of this one. Is it just me, or cal one see what looks like a vague outline of one of the weird cushion-like pads found on the Cuero creature? Or am I jyst doing a Captain Ahab and smelling land where there is no land?

Chupacabra Seen In Frisco, Texas – MHTV Declares It To Be Coyote with Mange

This chupacbara sighting is very important for one reason – MHTV is going on the record saying this is just a coyote with mange.

I've been harping on this for a long time; I agree and it is sad and discouraging to come across reports of another "chupacabra" found, and often killed. Another issue is the trigger happy shooting going on when one sees something they're not sure of...

Maybe. For a mangy coyote though at this stage of infection shouldn't this animal look more emaciated than this? It appears quite healthy to me.

It's not a dog with mange. It's a Xoloitzcuintli. Look them up. I own one. :)
