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.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that......

     The platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) genome contains both bird and mammal chromosomes, thus showing that animals with widely divergent chromosomes can exist?

     
Platypus

A population of human-yeti hybrids is
supposed to live near Dhanag (Nepal)?  A female yeti is supposed to have once kidnapped a boy and these creatures are their descendants.

In the Orkney Islands, off the north coast of Scotland, they once believed in a winged beast called the Horse of Hillaroo?  It was said to carry off children.
