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.

MAMELEU

This is a large serpent which dwells in the sea in the lore of Negros Island in the Philippines.  Its length is said to be 1800 feet.   It is not impossible that some huge monster lies behind this belief.  It is said to wail and to spit out green water.  The mameleu is supposed to be a cave dweller.  Its eyes are also said to be dangerous, shooting bolts of fire.  To add to all these endearing characteristics, it is said to be poisonous.
