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...

RICHARD MUIRHEAD: CFZ Notes and Queries

This is a new feature for the CFZ Monthly Newsletter and is based upon the popular series of questions and answers that appeared in Victorian national and regional periodicals in the 19th Century and in much more recent times in The Guardian. or more appropriately, Science Gossip. The questions you submit can be on any aspect of cryptozoology or its allied discipline, Fortean Zoology.

For example,if you are highly curious and can`t wait to find out the answer to the Question: "When was the first time a black squirrel was seen in Britain?" hopefully someone will be in the know! to kick off, Richard Muirhead would like to know,"where and when have bona fide tropical butterflies been seen in the wild in the U.K. ones that were not kept in zoos or as pets?" Readers - it`s over to you!
