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...

CFZ INVESTIGATES: A Chupacabras skull?

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Has a chupacabra been found in New Mexico? Legend has it the goat sucker first appeared in Puerto Rico in the 1990s. But this week, Martin Mcosker said he found one just south of Las Vegas, New Mexico. The avid treasure hunter often spends time searching for something interesting, but when he wasn't looking he stumbled across something he never expected to see.

Treasure hunter believes he found chupacabra skull

We sent the picture to Lars Thomas who wrote:

"Looks fairly small - so jaguarundi, bobcat, perhaps even domestic cat. Canines looks long because the rest of the tissue is shrunken, and it seems to have very few molars, just like cat, although it is difficult to see on the photo."

Checking the mammal list of New Mexico, Canadian lynx and bobcat are the only two small felids known from the state.
