At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

THIS DAY IN WEIRD



On This Day in Weird, January 27...

1963: A resident of Cold Springs, Calif., phoned sheriff's deputies to report a Bigfoot sighting. Officers responding to the call heard "horrible screams" in the nearby woods, but saw nothing.

1999: A trawler in New Zealand waters (44°20.5′S 177°08.8′W), nets a giant squid at a depth of 504 meters.

2000: Another fishing crew off New Zealand (44°21.19'S 175°05'–174°34'E) hauls up a giant squid 21 feet 2 inches long, from a depth of 615 meters, later claiming that it "lost seven feet of its length through drying out."
