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.

DON'T USE THESE TERMS

There are two terms which should be dropped from the cryptozoological vocabulary - Injun Devil and Scotland Devil.  These terms are used in a vague sense for any of various cryptids and are too non-specific for proper assessments.  The first seems to be particularly popular in Maine, while the second seems to be applied chiefly and perhaps exclusively to felids.
