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 3...

1863: Future horror/fantasy author Arthur Machen ("The Great God Pan," "The Red Hand," etc.) born at Caerleon, Wales.

1959: Cinematic release of The Giant Behemoth, wherein radioactive waste dumped at sea revives a dormant dinosaur with dire consequences for the British countryside.

2008: A hand-sized piece of ice crashes through the roof of a private home in Gastonia, North Carolina. Authorities blame an aircraft passing overhead.
