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...

CRYPTOLINK: 'Britain's Bigfoot' spotted in Tunbridge Wells - Signs of the Times

You see some strange things in and around the county, but perhaps this could be the weirdest yet, after claims a British Bigfoot has been spotted in woodland near Tunbridge Wells. Dubbed the Kentish Apeman, it is claimed he towers eight-foot tall, is covered in hair and has red demonic eyes.

And while that may sound like lots of people after a night on the town, what's intriguing many is the fact a recent sighting ties in with one nearly 70 years ago on the same spot. The most recent sighting is believed to have taken place last month on Tunbridge Wells Common - the 200-acre wooded site which sits in the centre of the town and is one of its most picturesque features.

I really don't know how this story has gone from the CFZ bloggo to The Sun, Daily Mail etc...and there's nothing worse than being called a 'paranormal expert' when i couldn't give a toss about the bloody paranormal!! Oh for the power of the media...

I dare say this explains why the beer down there is so bloody awful (as I'm sure Mr Freeman can confirm); the locals can't cope with the good stuff.

I'm sure that if you research it, the Bigfoot sightings will coincide with the local hostelries having something like Tim Taylor's or Cropton beer on as a guest. Having said that, the effect may well be reproducible (an experiment for which I am prepared to volunteer in advance, as a Control Yorkshireman) and indeed a great deal more research ought to be performed on the matter.

Could it have been Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells?
