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.

This, as many of you will know, is a taunting word used by Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory.  However, it has also entered the realm of zoology.  A species of bee was described in 2012.  It is found in Brazil and was deliberately named Euglossa bazinga after Sheldon's word.  It has also been used as the name of an Australian jellyfish, the Bazinga, discovered in 2013.
