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...

Tim Shattuck, who was contacted by the production company who started Monsters and Mysteries series, says soon after he started his Flathead Lake Monster Charters business last October was when they contacted him.
“The show focuses more on the folklore and myths,” said Shattuck, who claims he has seen the Flathead Lake monster twice.
“I think it’s a big old fish,” he said. “I think it’s a lake sturgeon. You have to have some common sense about really what could live in this big lake.”
The Flathead Lake Monster is a cryptid, a creature whose existence is not proven, that is said to be located in Flathead Lake in Montana. Its appearance is very similar to that of the Loch Ness Monster, and the two have often been said to be the same type of creature.
The Flathead Lake monster has been described as a large eel-shaped creature, round with a wavy body like a snake, that spans from twenty to forty feet. According to Wikipedia, it is brownish to blue-black with grayish-black eyes. It has often been described as looking like a whale or a giant sturgeon which one of the oldest families of bony fish.
