WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THESE?

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.
Some years ago, I found a slab of rock (probably had been used in a nearby dry stone wall) in Derbyshire, that had the clear impression of a very large human ?? footprint in it. Unfortunately at the time I had little or no interest in such things (or the means to transport it if I had such interest) so paid little heed to it other than thinking it was a bit strange. All that I can now say about it some 35years later, is that it was very distinct with the length of the print around 18 to 20 inches in length, about 8 inches at the widest point and some 4 to 5 inches across the heel. The depth of the impression in the stone was approximately half an inch.
The slab of rock was approximately 25 inches by 18 inches and 2 inches thick.
