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.

RUSALKA

Have you heard of the rusalka?  Rusalkas are water spirits of eastern Europe.  These days they are considered dangerous, but were once regarded as benevolent.  Nowadays it is said they will lure men into the water and drown them.  They are very beautiful, with green or golden hair.  They will sometimes set upon a human of any type and will tickle him or her to death.  They are under the rule of  male creatures called vodyanies who often look ugly and are on the fat side.  Of them it is believed  that if you drown near one, he will eat you and put your soul in a jar.
