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.

WHAT IS A WHATZIT?

Buck Mountain is an unofficially named peak in Addison County, Vermont.  It is rather obscure, at the present time not having a Wikipedia entry.  The nearest settlement is Waltham, population under 500.

The creature called the Whatzit is a feature of local lore.  It looks somewhat like a goat but walks on two legs and lacks horns.  Estimates of its height have not been made, as it runs off screaming when observed.  It is covered with whitish-gray hair.  Joseph A. Citro seems to be the foremost authority on the Whatzit, but even his knowledge seems strictly limited.

P.T. Barnum put a strange creature on show called the What-is-it.
Actually, the secret of What-was-it has been revealed - it was a man in a costume, pretending to be a subhuman.
