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: Lizard Man: South Carolina's Legendary Creature Spotted? (VIDEO)

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.

Various regions have their own cryptozoological legend. New Jersey has the Jersey Devil, Scotland has the Loch Ness Monster and South Carolina has the Lizard Man.
Several residents in South Carolina have been raving, claiming that the Lizard Man returned to Lee County last Sunday. The Lizard Man is a local urban legend about a massive, man-sized lizard that lurks in the area's swamps, according to Starpulse.
Sarah, a Sumter woman who says she went to church with a friend Sunday morning when she stepped out of the building and allegedly saw the Lizard Man running along the treeline. This sighting prompted her to take a photo to spread the word, according to ABC's South Carolina affiliate ABC 4.
