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: Meet the Native Bigfoot Hunters From '10 Million Bigfoot Bounty'

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. 

Currently SpikeTV has been airing episodes of its new series 10 Million Bigfoot Bounty in which nine elite teams of searchers look for definitive proof of the existence of Bigfoot.
In a conversation with ICTMN, brothers Dan and Dave Greene (Mohawk, Tuscarora, Chippewa), who are billed as the Native American team on the show and sometimes called the "Green Giants," talked about their prior experiences as Bigfoot-hunters.
Has either of you actually ever seen Bigfoot?
Dan Greene, Carson City, NV: I have seen Bigfoot on two occasions. I was in the woods of northern Michigan the first time, sledding with my sister Emily. We turned around and saw something sitting by a tree -- we thought it was a bear, then it stood up on two legs and walked and looked at us. Then It walked into the woods. It was a real spooky feeling that made the hair on your neck stand up.
The second time we were on the reservation in Michigan at night and we built a wigwam that we were going to sleep in. It was a moonlit night which lit up the pond and we heard a sound that we thought was chopping. We looked across the pond we saw something tall and dark, it was big and had a branch and was hitting the tree. We were kids, and thought it was a killer chopping up somebody. It wasn't a person because it was dark and shaggy and he was hitting a tree with a branch. This was in 1985. This was before the theory of three came about.
