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.

The fogliongo is a creature in Italian folklore.  Belief in it is found particularly in the district of Garafagnana.  This creature is said to kill poultry and exsanguinate them.  This is something associated with the Puerto Rican chupacabra.  If there is any truth in this belief, however, the two creatures are unlikely to be related.  With accounts of exsanguinated creatures, it is sometimes difficult to discover if they were properly checked for bloodlessness.
