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.

Great Slave Lake
The Great Slave Lake in Canada is the 9th largest lake in the world.  The folklore of the Dene Indians has maintained the existence of a monster in its watery depths.  However, sightings have not been confined to the First Nations.  During the 1990s certain divers in the lake reported a strange creature that seemed to have a head like a pike and a body like an alligator.  A priest, Father Lynn, must have been somewhat startled one day when he looked out and saw a draconic head following a boat.

The creature is said to live off Utsingh Point.  Its color is supposedly green.  A considerable portion of the lake is icebound throughout the year, so it is very unlikely the creature, if indeed the observations are not mistaken, is  a reptile.

As for the peculiar name of the lake, it is taken from the tribal name of the Slave or Dogrib Indians.
