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: Group seeks area Bigfoot information

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 (sometimes for the wrong reasons), usually posted up without any comment whatsoever from me.

LEETONIA- A local group of Bigfoot researchers is seeking information about Columbiana County sightings.
The Genoskwa Project, a Bigfoot research and investigation group founded by Paul Hayes of Canton and Dan Baker of Sebring, will hold an information session at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Leetonia Community Public Library, 181 N. Walnut St.
According to Baker, the group is seeking information about four reported Bigfoot sightings this year near Franklin Square, including one in which two alleged Bigfoot stopped traffic on the state Route 45 hill south of Salem on July 7. He said all information collected from residents with personal experiences with a Bigfoot is held in strict confidence.
In addition to seeking information, the group will share evidence of Bigfoot, the reported sightings of which are prevalent in Ohio, Baker said. He said some of the items that will be shared include a footprint cast from the famed Patterson-Gimlin film in 1967 that shows a midtarsal break, indicating a difference from that of an arched human foot; a film that shows the 21-degree difference in gait between Bigfoot and humans; first-hand experiences from the researchers including reported sightings by Hayes in Stark County and Baker in Carroll County; and audio recordings of possible Bigfoot. There will also be a question-and-answer session and an opportunity for one-on-one sharing of experiences.
