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



On This Day in Weird, April 22...

1959: Theatrical premiere of The Monster of Piedras Blancas, wherein a lighthouse keeper pacifies a relict Diplovertebron with offerings of food until nosy locals intervene and mayhem ensues. Produce Jack Kevan previously supervised manufacture of the "gill man" suit at Universal Studios, for The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and his monster in this feature clearly resembles his South American cousin.
