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...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

On this day in 1939, Paul Hogan, Australia’s greatest movie star was born. You may scoff but lets be honest the first Crocodile Dundee film is pretty damn good and kicked off a bit of a craze about all things Australian across the world such as the music of Mozart, building cellars, Freud and being the birthplace of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Also if it weren't for Crocodile Dundee Steve Irwin might have had to find fame by dubbing himself the real life Dame Edna and his on-screen persona and Crocodile Hunter show would have been very different. Indeed the world may not have been ready for a bloke in a dress wrestling crocodiles. So we have a lot to thank him for (but not 'Almost an Angel', that was mank).
And now the news:
That's not a knife...
