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.

RAT-SHARKS: A HAWAIIAN HORROR

Now, here's something you might meet on your vacation in Hawaii.  On the island of Kauai there is a belief that, swimming about offshore, you will find the appalling Rat-shark.  This is not the kind of cryptid you will wish to encounter when splashing about in the water.  The rat-shark looks like a large rat, but, in its back, it has a shark's mouth, quite capable of devouring a human in the water.  Scary!

Hawaii: Kauai is highlighted.
