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...

I GOT DEM OL' MOLLUSC BLUES AGAIN MAMA



Fact: blue slugs are better than other slugs. It's true! Not only are these Carpathian blue slugs (Bielzia coerulans) magnificently colored, but they're also super big, reaching lengths of 100-140 mm in length. That's large for slug standards. You can find these guys sliding their way across coniferous or deciduous forest leaf litter - typically under dead logs. Obviously, that's the best place for a slug to be.

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

On this day in 1661 Thomas Venner was hung, drawn and quartered. I bet you don’t know who he was, do you? Well, if not, this is one of those occasions when you’ll be glad that you read YNT today - what do you get if you mix the gunpowder plot with the Iranian Embassy siege and set it during the restoration? Exciting stuff that you didn’t get taught in school history lessons, that’s what!

BIGFOOT FORUMS BLOG: An Interview With Mike Rugg


Michael Rugg is co-founder of the Bigfoot Discovery Project (BDP) and Curator of The Bigfoot Discovery Museum in Felton CA. The BDP accepts the subject of the Patterson/Gimlin Film as the type specimen for the Pacific Coast Bigfoot or Sasquatch and seeks to create a dialogue about the implications of the impending "discovery of bigfoot" by conventional Western science.

ANDREW MAY: Words from the Wild Frontier

The Wild Frontier is strangely quiet at the moment. When I came to do my usual Monday post yesterday, there was only one story (and not a particularly exciting one)... and after waiting another 24 hours there is still only one story!

From CFZ Australia:

DALE DRINNON: Serendipity at Cedar & Willow

I found some photos advertised on ebay and I made a fumetti. I hadn't intended to, but it sort of wrote itself.
