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.

WHITE RABBIT OF ETRURIA

The Etruria concerned is not the ancient home of the Etruscans (modern Tuscany, Italy), but a village in Staffordshire, England.  It came into existence when celebrated potter Josiah Wedgwood founded his factory there in 1769.

Nearby legend speaks of a phantasmal White Rabbit seen in the woods there.  It was supposed to be a beautiful creature, the color of milk.  The story runs that a man once tried to catch it.  He saw it and grabbed it, or so he thought, but his arms closed on nothing.  The White Rabbit had vanished.
