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.

Here's one from the archives.   In 1907 Franz Schmidt and Rudolf Pfleng were traveling on the Solimoes River in Colombia.  Gazing at the riparian bushes, which were about 10' tall, they saw a huge head appear and look over them.  It had a snout reminiscent of a tapir's.  It emerged from the trees and they saw it had clawed flippers instead of forelegs.  The two men calculated the shoulder height at 8'-9'.
