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...

DALE DRINNON: Giant bats, bigfoot, neanderthals, dogman


Continuing the Giant Bat Photo Story: http://frontiersofzoology.blogspot.com/2012/03/re-giant-bat-photo.html

And on comparing the Eastern Bigfoot to the known fossil type of Heidelberg Man:
http://frontiersofzoology.blogspot.com/2012/03/homo-sapiens-heidelbergensis-big-daddy.html
(With a little clarification about Neanderthaloids in general, and why if the Heidelbergers and Neanderthalers are to be classified together, their subspecies is neanderthalensis by priority and both types may be called Neanderthals sensuo lato.

On Frontiers of Anthropology another connection between Precolumbian Mayans and Georgia in that Georgia produces a blue pigment very popular in Mayan paintings:

BLOGGO: Everything is on a go-slow today



OUR BROADBAND VEERS BETWEEN NON-EXISTENT AND THE SPEED OF A THREE TOED SLOTH WITH A DEPRESSIVE ILLNESS AND A SEVERE LACK OF MOTIVATION. THE BLOGS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE TODAY IS HELD UP AS A RESULT OF THIS. SORRY...
