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...

CRYPTOLINK: Oklahoma Bigfoot Symposium brings sasquatch believers together in Stilwell

A word about cryptolinks: we are not responsible for the content of cryptolinks, which are merely links to outside articles that we think are interesting (sometimes for the wrong reasons), usually posted up without any comment whatsoever from me. This post, however, is particularly interesting and the author should be congratulated...


STILWELL, Okla. - Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti. No matter the name a lot of believers gathered in Stilwell this weekend to share their evidence that the creature exist. "Then something happened that was monumental, that just changed how I looked at things in general," recalled one researcher as he described an encounter with a Bigfoot. A common saying when Bigfoot researchers and believers come together.


All this weekend tall tales are being told in Stillwell at the second annual Oklahoma Bigfoot Symposium.
For the speakers and guests gathered from across the country, finding Bigfoot is just part of their life.
"To me to have an experience is almost like an adrenaline rush," Ron Boles with the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization said. "Some people like to jump out of planes. I like to go in the woods."
They understand that not everyone buys in to it. Randy Harrington with the Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center didn't really get it he says until he came across an adult Bigfoot with its child in Oklahoma.
"Some people you are just not going to convince they are out there," Harrington said. "Other people are very accepting of the fact that these creatures are out there. I'm telling you, they're out there.
With all of their research devices, Bigfoot believers say the evidence is becoming more and more credible, with thermal technology now being used. Compared to night vision recordings, thermal technology is harder to fake researchers say.
