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.

French legend tells of dragons which were killed, but which nonetheless caused the deaths of their killers.  One was the Dragon of Lissagues in Aquitaine, which supposedly flourished about the beginning of the 15th Century.  It was killed by Gaston de belzunce, but fell upon him in death, killing him.

Another dragon was the Dragon of Niort in Picardy.  It was slain by Guillaume de Beauchamp who wore a glass mask to protect himself from the animal's fiery breath and accompanying fumes.  He killed the dragon and then took off the mask to inspect the victim.  From the corpse came a squirt of poison, which killed him.
