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, June 12...

1983: 15-year-old Owen Burnham finds a strange carcass, resembling that of a prehistoric ichthyosaurus, stranded at Bungalow Beach, Republic of the Gambia, West Africa. While local fishermen call it a "dolphin," the animal measures 15 feet long, with a 2.5-foot beak containing 80 identical conical teeth. Cryptozoologists nickname the creature "Gambo."
