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...

WASHINGTON - Along the lines of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster comes a new animal mystery. This one is here in the nation's capital. The question this time: Were those two large, dark animals spotted in a field near the Fort Totten Metro Station Wednesday afternoon black bears? Fort Totten is the transfer point for the Green and Red Line trains where thousands of commuters spend part of their workdays. And they see all kinds of things.

"I know there are some wild critters," says Metro rider Victor Akosile. "But a black bear? That's something out of a story you hear." This story comes to us from Dale Parker. He was on the platform Wednesday when he and other commuters saw something unusual out in a field next to the station. He snapped a photo. He put it on Twitter. We saw it and gave Parker a call. "They looked like bears," Parker tells us from his home in Silver Spring. "There were two of them. And they were starting to walk toward each other. But they can't be cats. They were too big."
