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.

This lake lies in British Columbia.  It traditionally housed a monster and there has been a reported sighting.  This sighting is undated, but seems to have taken place in August, 2010.  Witness Darlene Thompkins saw a head resembling that of a large snake emerge from the water.  Then a second and a third came into sight.  There seems to be no description of the body.

Let us travel further south to Lake Hopcatong in New Jersey.  The Delaware Indians had a tradition of a monster in this lake.  The texture of its body resembled an elephant's and it had huge antlers or horns.  It hasn't been seen for 200 years, but white settlers have claimed to see its body under water.

Lake Clinch (Florida) was also the source of Indian traditions of a lake monster.  A sighting in 1907 from Frostproof of a creature estimated at 30' in length was supposedly that of the monster.
