A blog for the United States branch of the global Centre for Fortean Zoology
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.

Lake Granbury (Texas) twists and turns somewhat, as you can see from the aerial photograph above. Lake Granbury is supposedly tenanted by a monster that bears the singular name of One-Eye. Reports of some sort of monster in the lake date from the time when Texas was ruled by the Spaniards. It is usually described as resembling a serpent. There are plenty of fish available to ward off the creature's hunger. Whether it has attained a one-eyed state by accident or whether it is naturally one eyed, I cannot say. There may also be a freshwater octopus of some kind in the lake, for in 1998 a boatman reported his craft had been attacked by tentacles.
