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.

While the Himalayan black bear is a well-known and established species (I have seen some), there is also said to be a smaller species of ursid occupying the same region.  This, the Nepalese Tree Bear, is locally called sano reech.  It is not impossible that these are merely young Himalayan black bears.  The locals, however, are quite sure they are not.  There was a living specimen in Kathmandu Zoo.

The above photograph is of an Asiatic black bear, of which the Nepalese Tree Bear is said to look like a smaller version.
