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...

THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - With Snakeheads!

We received this email this morning from those jolly nice people at Wildwoods. And there are species here I have never seen before...


FISH HOUSE NEWS - It’s Snakehead Time!


Our latest Indian shipment is now out of quarantine and we can now offer many rare and sought after species and colour variants of snakehead. Add these to our other Asian and African species and you will find the greatest collection of snakehead species ever offered for sale in the UK (if not Europe!)Only found from India, we have for only the 2nd time ever, Channa diplogramma
This rarely traded snakehead is very similar in appearance to the giant or red snakehead and will also grow to a large size. We currently have a group of five living happily together.


A full listing of all Wildwoods snakeheads can be found in our TF2YD webshop
After a three year wait, we have managed to import a small quantity of L260 Queen Arabesque plecs - looking fantastic at the moment! Also from Brazil we have a fabulous group of Geophagus altifrons and some stunning large Sunshine plecs - L14 Scobinancistrus aureatus



And why did Jon choose that headline?
