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 creature known as Pinky has been reported from the St Johns River, Florida.  It was first said to have been seen in the 1950s.  It is (as you might have guessed) pink in color and looks somewhat reptilian.  There was a clear sighting in 1975.  A pink head, reminiscent of a dinosaur's, came up from beneath the water, striking one of the witnesses as though its skin had been removed, exposing bones beneath.  It had horns reminiscent of a snail's antennae.  Its eyes were slanted and gills and fins were noticed.  Various identities have been proposed, such as dinosaur and salamander.

St Johns River

The Saint Johns River

This river is known as the American Nile.  Most rivers in the Northern Hemisphere flow southwards, but the Nile flows northwards and so too does the St Johns River, presumably earning it this nickname.  It is the longest river in Florida.
