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: Tunbridge Wells Bigfoot: Londoners come to town to search for mythical monster

A word about cryptolinks: We are not responsible for the content of cryptolinks, which are merely links to outside articles that we think are interesting, usually posted up without any comment whatsoever from me.  

Back in November we reported on claims that the British Bigfoot had been spotted in woodland near Tunbridge Wells.
The story of the eight-foot tall Kentish Apeman caught the national media's interest - with stories appearing in The Sun, Daily Mail, Metro and Telegraph - amongst many others!
Now it seems to have sparked the interest of the London Cryptozoology Club, who went on an expedition to Tunbridge Wells earlier this month in search of the beast.
In this blog post by Matt Salusbury, he says how a group of members walked on the Commons trying to find the demonic-eyed monster.

As my blog post shows, we went with no expectation of finding any red-eyed monsters. It was a light-hearted Sunday outing in the firm belief that the answers to the Tunbridge Wells bigfoot were somewhere to be found in the "psycho-social" realm. Our mission was to sit around the pub asking people if they'd seen anything, with the emphasis on sitting around the pub.
Since then Take a Break's "Fate and Fortune" magazine (platform for horoscope ads, as far as I can discern) approached me and another from the London Cryptozoology Club for a 'light-hearted' comment on the Tunbridge Wells Bigfoot. We both declined, me not very politely.
