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.

On This Day in Weird, March 25...

1863: Chunks of unidentified meat fall from a clear sky onto the home of a Mr. Kiernan in Sacramento, California.

1930: Fortean author John Alva Keel born (as Alva John Kiehle) in Hornell, N.Y. His books include Jadoo (1957), The Fickle Finger of Fate (1966), UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse (1970), Strange Creatures From Time and Space (1970), Our Haunted Planet (1971), The Flying Saucer Subculture (1973), The Mothman Prophecies (1975), The Eighth Tower (1975), The Cosmic Question (1978), and Disneyland of the Gods (1988).
